Q: What precisely does web site migration imply and what does it include?
A: The web site migration service on offer at Profesionelle is completely free of charge and consists of transferring all your web files, databases and e–mails from your present web hosting provider to your new web hosting account with us. We will also edit all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully functional on our super–modern cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving any kind of website. With years of work experience in this field, they are well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with lots of custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based weblog.
Q: Just how long will it take for my website to be migrated over to your platform?
A: We try to carry out all website migrations as quickly as possible. However, we don’t have a set time frame for website migrations. There are several things that you need to consider – the very size of your site and the workload of our web site migration staff, etc. We always try to carry out each migration in under 48 hours. With less sizeable web sites, our staff usually manages to finish in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you begin transferring my web site?
A: We will need the login details for your current hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the web site’s name (domain name).
Q: My old hosting account has delicate info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your website will work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. When we have finished the transfer, your site will be configured to work on our web hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning correctly, all you will need to do is change the NS resource records pertaining to your domain. Your site will be migrated over to us with no downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider have to do anything?
A: Nope. We will never get in touch with your hosting provider about anything. They won’t be aware of the website transfer either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. Essentially, if we can acquire access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to transfer your site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source web site building platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
