Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Rawwire is completely free and consists of moving all your web files, databases and emails from your present hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be fully operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of moving any type of web site. With years of experience in this field, they’re experts in the inner workings of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other widely used Control Panels. For them, moving a custom–built web app with many custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration process take?
A: There are lots of variables to take into account – the total number of web files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the web site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our best to implement all web site migrations within a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized web sites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is essential for me. What information do you require?
A: We’ll need the login information for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: No. Your website will remain completely operational during the migration. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can examine it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain name’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know that I am leaving them?
A: Nah. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They will not be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate data from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–driven hosting platform on condition that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only sites that we cannot transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
