Q: Why should I move my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: The website migration service offered by Pro Website Group is completely free of charge and involves moving all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present hosting provider to your brand new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the settings necessary for your web sites to be completely operational on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of transferring any sort of website. With years of practical experience in this field, they are experts in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other well–known Control Panels. For them, moving a custom app with plenty of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a plain WordPress blog.
Q: Just how long will the web site migration procedure take?
A: There are plenty of factors to consider – the total amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the present workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. That being said, we do our very best to implement all website migrations within a 48–hour time window. Less sizeable websites are migrated much faster – typically within 24 hours.
Q: My privacy is crucial to me. What data do you need to have?
A: Yep. We will need the name of the website that you’d like us to move. We will also need a way to log into your old hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will there be any outage for my web site?
A: Your website will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous hosting provider. When we are done with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS records corresponding to your domain. Your web site will be transferred to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any info/assistance?
A: Nope. We will never get in touch with your web hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current provider is using?
A: We support all Linux–powered web hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can gain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
