Q: Why do I need to move my web site? What does website migration involve?
A: The web site migration service offered by Visionary Direct is entirely free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and emails from your present web hosting provider to your brand–new web hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your sites to be fully functional on our ultra–modern cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with plenty of custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: How long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We try to accomplish all web site migrations ASAP. Nonetheless, we don’t have a fixed time frame for web site migrations. There are different facets that you need to consider – the mere size of your website and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly strive to implement each migration in under 48 hours. With smaller–sized web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: We don’t require any personal info. We will require, however, the login information for your present hosting account as well as the name of the web site that you wish to transfer.
Q: The login details for my hosting account are sensitive. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my website?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. As soon as the transfer is over, we’ll ensure that everything is working correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized prior to informing you that the transfer is complete. After that, we’ll tell you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to modify the DNS resource records.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer website content from?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–based hosting platforms, as we don’t provide Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we don’t support proprietary site creation and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
