Q: Why should I transfer my site? What does website migration consist of?
A: The web site migration service offered by Salaga is absolutely free of cost and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your current provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any type of website. With years of work experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built application with multiple custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration sounds like lots of work. Just how long is it going to take?
A: We try to implement all website migrations ASAP. Even so, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are several factors that you have to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to carry out each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What details do you need?
A: Yes. We’ll need to have the name of the site that you wish us to transfer. We will also require a way to log in to your present hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your website.
Q: My old hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we have completed the migration, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is update the name server resource records for your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not get in touch with them in any way.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven web hosting platform provided that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we are unable to migrate are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
