Q: Why do I have to transfer my site? What does website migration entail?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer meet the demands of your website, or when you experience continuous network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the client service staff to respond to you, it might be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At AJs Web Hosting, we are aware that this can be hard & time–consuming. This is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our proficient technical staff will move your website content from your present provider to us. Our techs have a lot of experience with web site migration and can take care of anything – from a normal WordPress–powered blog or Joomla–based website, to a highly complex, custom–built web app.
Q: How much time will the web site migration process take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time interval, because there are many factors, among them the physical size of the files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to move your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (in case the website content is not very large).
Q: What details will I be asked to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We don’t request any private info. We’ll need, however, the login information for your current hosting account and the name of the web site that you want to move.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?

Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Aside from your login details for the Control Panel, we do not need anything. We will never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the transfer either.

Essentially, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we will be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source website creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
