Q: What does the web site migration service entail? Will my website be secure?
A: When your present web hosting provider can no longer match the needs of your website, or if you go through continual downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the support team to reply back to you, it may be a smart idea to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider.
At uGottaHost.com, we realize that this can often be hard & time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll perform all that for you for free! Our capable technical team representatives will move your site content from your present hosting provider to us.
Our technicians have a lot of experience migrating websites and are able to handle everything – from a customary WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–driven site, to a very elaborate, custom–made web application.
A: We try to perform all web site migrations ASAP. Yet, we don’t have a fixed time frame for website migrations.
There are several factors that you have to take into consideration – the very size of your site and the workload of our website migration team, etc.
We constantly strive to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
