Q: Why should I move my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service available at Ayasoftware.ca is absolutely free and involves transferring all your website files, databases and e–mails from your current provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also modify all the configuration settings needed for your websites to be completely functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are completely capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of practical experience in the industry, they are well–versed in the specificities of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom–built web application with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a plain WordPress–based blog.
Q: Website migration seems like a lot of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: We strive to carry out all website migrations as fast as possible. Even so, we don’t have a set time frame for web site migrations. There are different things that you need to take into account – the very size of your web site and the workload of our website migration staff, etc. We constantly try to accomplish each migration in less than 48 hours. With less sizeable websites, our staff typically manages to finish within 24 hours.
Q: Do you need anything from me before you start transferring my site?
A: Yup. We will require the name of the site that you’d like us to migrate. We’ll also need a way to log in to your current web hosting account so that we can get the files associated with your web site.
Q: The login info for my hosting account is delicate. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be offline?
A: Nope. Your website will stay accessible online during the transfer. Once everything is completed on our end, we’ll let you know so that you can preview it and check for problems. If everything is alright, all you will have to do is change your domain’s DNS records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the migration at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer data from?
A: Yup. We support all regular Linux–driven web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, since we do not offer Windows web hosting services ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary site creation and administration interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
