Can we pause our campaigns while we switch website platforms?
Since we got our AdWords grant, my nonprofit's website has been on a Drupal platform with donated hosting. Since the board member who created the website moved out of state, I've been managing the website as best I can. However, over the last 2 years, we have just been in a constant battle with hackers. Last fall we hired someone to update our security, which he did and we were good for a couple of months, but now it's out of control again and our website is down more than it is up and I don't have the skills nor time to deal. And we can't find anyone who wants to mess with Drupal that we can also afford.
So just this week, we decided to redesign our website on Google Sites. We plan to have a basic page up in a couple of days, but may not have landing pages for our ad campaigns for a week or two.
Can we suspend all of our campaigns temporarily without losing our grant? Is there a time limit?

You may be interested in trying the Adwords Editor power tool! https://www.google.com/intl/en_us/adwordseditor/ It is a separate program you download on your computer, and it makes bulk Adwords account changes (like changing all of your URLs) very quick and easy!
I am also a WordPress developer, so please don't hesitate to let me know if I can assist with any other website questions you may have.
