Q: What does the website migration service consist of? Will my site be secure?
A: The website migration service offered by Pro System Web Hosting is totally free and involves moving all your files, databases and e–mails from your current web hosting provider to your brand–new hosting account with us. We’ll also update all the configuration settings needed for your sites to be fully functional on our avant–garde cloud hosting platform.Our technicians are fully capable of transferring any type of site. With years of experience behind their backs, they are well–versed in the inner workings of our cloud hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other famous Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as moving a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my site to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to implement all web site migrations ASAP. Yet, we do not have a fixed time frame for website migrations. There are various facets that you need to consider – the very size of your web site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to implement each migration within 48 hours. With less sizeable sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you require something from me before you start moving my web site?
A: Yup. We will need the name of the site that you’d like us to transfer. We’ll also need a means to access your current web hosting account so that we can get the content pertaining to your site.
Q: I give you access to sensitive data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my web site be unavailable during the transfer?
A: While we transfer your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your previous web hosting provider. When the transfer is over, we’ll make sure that everything is functioning correctly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before informing you that the transfer is finished. Then we’ll instruct you how to transfer the domain name over to your web hosting account with us and how to edit the DNS records.
Q: Will my present hosting provider need to provide any information/help?
A: No. We will never contact your web hosting provider about anything. They will not 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. Basically, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your web site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source site management platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
