Q: Why do I have to transfer my site? What does web site migration involve?
A: The website migration service on offer at IronLand is totally free of cost and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings required for your sites to be fully functional on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any sort of site. With years of work experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom application with many custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration sounds like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: There are many variables to keep in mind – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. However, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations in a 48–hour window. Smaller–sized sites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is vital to me. What data do you require?
A: Yup. We’ll need to have the name of the website that you want us to move. We will also need a way to log into your present web hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my site?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old hosting provider. After the migration is over, we’ll make certain that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your web content is not compromised before telling you that the migration is complete. Then we will tell you how to move the domain name to your web hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Does it make a difference what platform my present provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source website building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
