Q: Why do I have to transfer my web site? What does web site migration entail?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer match the requirements of your site, or when you undergo continuous network downtime, or if you have to wait for hours for the client support team to respond back to you, it may be smart to swap your web hosting provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your websites along with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Pro Business Saver Hosting, we understand that this can often be difficult & time–consuming. That’s the reason why we’ll accomplish all that for you for free!Our highly skilled technical team members will migrate your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our techs have got broad experience migrating websites and can take care of everything – from a customary WordPress–based blog or Joomla™ CMS–based website, to an extremely elaborate, custom–made web app.
Q: How long will it take for my site to be transferred to your platform?
A: While we can’t give you an exact time window, because there are many factors, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your web site and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will try our best to migrate your web site within 48h, and in certain cases – within 24h (when the content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you begin moving my site?
A: Yeah. We will need to have the name of the website that you’d like us to move. We will also require a way to log into your current web hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your site.
Q: My present hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my site be offline during the transfer?
A: While we migrate your web site, it will be available both in your hosting account with us and in your account with your former hosting provider. When the transfer is complete, we’ll make sure that everything is working properly and that the integrity of your data is not jeopardized before notifying you that the transfer is done. After that, we’ll explain to you how to transfer the domain over to your web hosting account with us and how to modify your DNS records.
Q: Will my present web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nah. Apart from your login details for the Control Panel, we don’t require anything. We’ll never touch base with your web hosting provider. They won’t know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you transfer content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any web hosting provider or any Linux–based web hosting platform on condition that we can access the Control Panel and there is FTP access available.The only sites that we are unable to transfer are the ones based on closed–source software apps like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
