Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service offered by Sytec Computers is absolutely free and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings required for your websites to be fully operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with lots of custom libraries is as easy as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: We strive to perform all website migrations as fast as possible. However, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are certain factors that you have to consider – the mere size of your web site and the workload of our website migration team, etc. We always try to accomplish each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What data do you require?
A: Yep. We’ll require the name of the website that you wish us to transfer. We will also require a means to access your current hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your website.
Q: You will access sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your web site will work exactly like it did before with your former hosting provider. As soon as we have finished the migration, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working properly, all you will need to do is update the name server resource records associated with your domain. Your site will be transferred to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my present hosting provider discover that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your web 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: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: Yeah. We support all conventional Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, as we do not offer Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site building and administration tools such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
