WordPress Website Migration
Do you need to carry out a WordPress website migration? To transfer a WordPress site from one host to another is not as easy as it seems, despite what you may have read on Google, or what your web hosting company have told you…
WordPress Website Migration Service
Trying to migrate a WordPress website manually or without a plugin is a task for a provider like myself rather than you.
Every now and then you may need to upgrade your current website to a new one, which may involve a WordPress transfer. This is a migration where a website that is in development needs to migrate to a live server to replace your existing website. Migration plugins can help, but they have size limits
With WordPress websites, this isn’t always a straightforward task, as your current site may have a news section containing numerous articles or blog posts that you may have added. Or perhaps if you use WooCommerce, or similar, you may want to retain your order confirmations and client details, which could all be lost if you do a transfer to a new website without considering all the implications.
Custom WordPress Transfer Services
I offer a WordPress transfer service, or WordPress migration if you prefer which will ensure the smooth transfer from one website to another no matter where either is hosted.
