Q: Why do I need to transfer my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: If your current hosting provider can no longer satisfy the needs of your website, or if you face continuous network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the help desk staff to get back to you, it might be smart to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your websites along with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At PK DOMAIN HOST, we understand that this can be hard & time–consuming. This is why we’ll perform all that for you at no cost!Our highly professional technical team will transfer your website content from your current web hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience with web site migration and are able to take care of anything – from an ordinary WordPress–powered blog or Joomla™–based web site, to an extremely complex, custom–built web application.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time will it take?
A: There are plenty of aspects to think about – the overall number of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do try to perform all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin moving my site?
A: We’ll require the login information for your old hosting provider’s Control Panel as well as the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: You will access delicate info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: No. Your site will stay accessible online during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll inform you so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything is alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the website migration either.
Q: Does it matter what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
