Q: What does the web site migration service involve? Will my website be safe?
A: The web site migration service provided by EFCT.com is totally free of cost and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings required for your sites to be completely functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are completely capable of moving any kind of web site. With years of work experience in this field, they’re experts in the specificities of our hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other popular Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web app with numerous custom libraries is as easy as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be moved to your platform?
A: There are a lot of variables to take into consideration – the total number of files, the physical size of the database, the complexity of the website itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. However, we do try to perform all website migrations within a 48–hour time period. Less sizeable web sites are transferred much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start moving my site?
A: Yes. We will need to have the name of the site that you want us to move. We will also need a means to access your present web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we are done with the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll alert you to preview it. If it is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: Nope. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never get in touch with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can transfer your website from any hosting provider or any Linux–powered web hosting platform so long as we can obtain access to the Control Panel and there’s FTP access available.The only websites that we can’t transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
