Q: Why do I have to transfer my website? What does web site migration involve?
A: The website migration service on offer at ORDIBEC is absolutely free of charge and consists of transferring all your files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We’ll also fine–tune all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully operational on our state–of–the–art cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any type of website. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Website migration seems like lots of work. How much time does it take?
A: We try to perform all website migrations as quickly as possible. Yet, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are several facets that you need to take into consideration – the sheer size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With smaller sites, our team typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is crucial to me. What information do you need?
A: Yes. We’ll need the name of the website that you want us to move. We’ll also need a way to access your present hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive info. How can I be sure that you won’t misuse it?
Q: What about downtime? Will my site be unavailable?
A: Your website will work just like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. Once we are done with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is change the name server resource records for your domain name. Your web site will be transferred over to us without any downtime.
Q: Will my old hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. We’ll never contact your hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We can transfer your website from any web hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can get access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only sites that we’re unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
