Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it include?
A: The website migration service provided by izazap is entirely free and consists of transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We will also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be fully operational on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any kind of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made application with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress weblog.
Q: How much time will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations as fast as possible. Still, we do not have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are certain things that you need to consider – the actual size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration team, etc. We always strive to carry out each migration within 48 hours. With smaller websites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: My personal privacy is essential for me. What info do you need to have?
A: We do not request any private information. We’ll need, though, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the site that you would like to migrate.
Q: I give you access to delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your site, it will be available both in your web hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the migration is finished, we will make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not compromised prior to informing you that the migration is complete. After that, we will tell you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to change the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I am leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login info for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–based web hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
