Our WordPress Migration Process

Once the transfer is done, we take care to configure and set up your website for optimal performance. Also, we make any changes you may require at this point.

Migration From Current Hosting
Hosting provider letting you down? Maybe it’s time to move your WordPress website to a new location. Our experts take care of it all so that your move becomes hassle-free.
Migration From Subdomain
Tired of your website languishing in the bowels of a subdomain? Subdomain WordPress sites might not be able to reap all the benefits that come with a top-level domain. Our professionals know the way to take your subdomain website from drab to fab.
Changing Domain Names
Changing your domain name without causing site outages and service disruptions can be a headache. However, if you’re aligned with us, then the task is easier done than said. Our experts know the ins and outs of domain name registrations and get the job completed in the blink of an eye.
Not backing up your servers before a migration is one of the cardinal sins of website maintenance. We know this and makes sure you don’t fall prey to it. We take secure and complete backups of your website data and ensure that even if something does go wrong, your site can still be restored to its former glory.
Your website must be accessible to everybody around the world. Website hosting makes this possible, it is an online disk space that makes this possible. You require website hosting to create a website powered by WordPress, although it is a good idea to confirm if WordPress installation is allowed in their space.
We strive hard to keep the downtime as little as possible, we know time is money. The downtime is the time required for the DNS propagation to happen. It would be a period of anywhere between 24-72 hours. In order to make the transition easier, we would suggest getting your website migration done over a weekend when website traffic is low.
We would require complete access details of your current web hosting and the new web hosting for that seamless migration. After the migration is complete, you have to update your DNS on your account, so that the changes are complete and visible on your new web hosting.
The normal time required is not more than 2 hours for completely transferring your website from one web hosting to another. In case the size of your website is greater than 1GB, it will take at least 6 hours to do the data transfer and another 24-72 hours for the DNS propagation, which can be carried out only after complete transfer of data.
The cost of website migration is $85
Yes, it is possible to change your domain name by configuring your WordPress website to work with a new domain after the migration to the new web hosting.
It is possible to keep on using Gmail as your email services even after the migration if the MX records in your domain haven’t changed. We would be able to set up DNS and MX records for Gmail if you provide us with your domain access account details.
The email addresses you have created with your existing web hosting will have to be recreated with your new web hosting. Email forwarders also have to be recreated in the new web hosting. This is to make sure you don't lose any of your emails in the existing web hosting during the migration. Getting a backup of all your email addresses and emails is a good idea. You will have to reconfigure your email settings on the new web hosting after the migration is done.
