Q: What precisely does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer answer the requirements of your website, or when you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the support staff to get back to you, it may be a clever idea to switch your hosting provider, i.e. to transfer all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Pagesroot, we are aware that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. This is why we will accomplish all that for you for free!Our skillful technical staff representatives will migrate your site content from your present hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got broad experience migrating web sites and are able to take care of everything – from a typical WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely complex, custom–made application.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: We strive to accomplish all website migrations as fast as possible. Nevertheless, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations.

Q: My current hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my website be unavailable?
