Q: Why do I need to move my website? What does website migration entail?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer measure up to the necessities of your website, or when you go through continuous downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the help desk staff to respond back to you, it might be a smart idea to swap your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites along with your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At Branic Designs, we are aware that this can often be hard & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will do all that for you at no cost!Our professional technical team will migrate your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have broad experience migrating websites and can handle everything – from a standard WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven website, to a highly elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be migrated to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations ASAP. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are certain variables that you have to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller–sized sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: What details will I need to give to your Website Migration Department?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the site that you want us to move. We’ll also require a way to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: My current hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If it is functioning properly, all you will need to do is modify the name server resource records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yeah. We support all traditional Linux–driven hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–based hosting platforms, because we don’t provide Windows hosting services ourselves.Additionally, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration user interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
