Website Migration Services
In addition to specialising in WordPress website development, we are also experts in migrating existing websites to the WordPress platform. We can migrate websites of any size or complexity, easily moving your content without loss of crucial functionality or website data.
Website Migration to a Content Management System
Over 455 million websites use WordPress around the world, due to its unique features, security, easy updates and ease of use. WordPress is a Content Management System, meaning it is user friendly, easy to maintain and has features to allow you to add and edit content.
During a website migration, we will move your site from one platform to another, such as from Joomla, Drupal or a custom platform to WordPress. It can be a simple move, or can include website, structure, or branding changes at the same time.
There are many reasons why you may want to migrate your website – whether it be to migrate to a new CMS, moving to a new server, moving from a subdomain to a main directory, or needing faster loading times.
We’ve got 13 years of experience in WordPress, and we know it like the back of our hand. We migrate websites manually as it allows us to plan for your specific circumstances and therefore gives you a seamless transfer. During the migration, we will evaluate your current website and create a CMS migration strategy, importing your content and testing website functionality before launching. During the migration, we can also improve website structure, design and user experience.
Once migrated, we also offer Website Support Service Level Agreements – supporting you with your websites and online applications, carrying out system updates and implementing tracking and monitoring to ensure that any issues are detected and resolved quickly.
Secure UK Servers
Websites build up a lot of data over time, and need to seamlessly transfer business critical data from one location to another. When we migrate your website to WordPress, we will also place it on our very own servers hosted here in the UK . Our servers have plenty of storage and bandwidth to function, scale and grow, and are monitored around the clock meaning there is no downtime for your business.
Once moved to our servers, your website will also be secured with an SSL certificate (making it HTTPS) giving your site an extra boost in Google search rankings.
SEO Focused Migration
You’ll need to take some steps to ensure that search engines continue to discover your website and rank it effectively, otherwise you may suffer a loss in traffic, rankings and, ultimately, revenue. When migrating your website, we will minimise organic search risks and ensure that your audience can continue their customer journey with you.
