Q: Why do I have to move my web site? What does web site migration consist of?
A: If your current web hosting provider can no longer answer the necessities of your website, or when you experience constant network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the technical support team to respond to you, it might be a clever idea to switch your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your sites together with your databases from your current provider to your new provider. At Cooters Cloud Hosting, we are aware that this can be hard & time–consuming.

Q: How much time will it take for my site to be moved to your platform?
A: We try to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Nonetheless, we do not have a fixed time frame for web site migrations.

With less sizeable websites, our team typically manages to finish in less than 24 hours.
Q: What details will I have to provide to your Website Migration Department?

A: Nah. We’ll never contact your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site transfer either.
Q: Which hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: Yeah. We support all standard Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven web hosting platforms, since we don’t provide Windows web hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site building and management interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
