Q: Why do I need to move my site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The web site migration service available at Tew Crazee is completely free of charge and consists of moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also fine–tune all the configuration settings required for your websites to be completely operational on our leading–edge cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of transferring any type of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they’re experts in the inner workings of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel and all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–made web application with lots of custom libraries is as easy as moving a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: How long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are lots of variables to bear in mind – the overall amount of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our best to carry out all website migrations in a 48–hour period. Smaller–sized websites are transferred faster – typically in less than 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my website?
A: We will require the login details for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel and the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: How about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: While we migrate your website, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your old web hosting provider. After the transfer is complete, we will make certain that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your web content is not affected before telling you that the migration is done. Then we will instruct you how to move the domain name to your hosting account with us and how to edit your DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current hosting provider learn that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We won’t touch base with them in any way.
Q: Which hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your website.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
