WEBSITE TRANSFER PROCESS

How it works

Transferring your existing WordPress site to us is safe and hassle free. Here's how it works:

Audit

We perform our initial audits and reviews of your existing WordPress site, looking at your security, code base, load speed, SEO, usability and design.

Fix

We implement any security fixes that need to be in place before we can transfer your website to us, and fix any high priority existing bugs causing you grief.

Transfer

We move your website to our server and test that everything’s working - particularly any interactive customer features such as forms and payments.

Improve

Depending on your priorities and goals, we’ll work in iterations to improve the functionality, design, customer experience and administration of your site.

Review

We hold regular reviews to understand the impact of any changes based on your Analytics, and suggest more ideas to improve performance further.

FAQs

How long will a transfer take?

It typically takes around 1 month to perform our audits and any fixes required. The actual transfer only takes 1 day and doesn’t involve any downtime. We can go quicker for smaller sites without any special functionality and where we’re not dependent on the availability of 3rd parties. Give us a call for a quick estimate on how long it’ll take to transfer your website to our team of WordPress experts.

What costs are involved for a website transfer?

It tends to cost between £395 and £1,995 + VAT for us to perform the audits, any high priority fixes and transfer your website to our hosting platform. If you have a small, simple brochure site that’s in good condition, it will be towards the lower end. For bigger, more complex sites that are in poorer condition, towards the high end. Get in touch for a tailored quote to transfer your website to our team of WordPress experts.

Is it better to keep my existing site, or start from scratch?

This depends on the state of your current site. If there’s more good than bad, it’s generally more economical to keep it. If there’s more bad than good, then normally better to start from scratch. The key areas to evaluate are the design (does it look modern and on brand?) the user journeys (can customers easily find what they’re looking for?) WordPress (is it easy to edit your content?) the functionality (does everything work as it should?) the code base (does it follow modern best practice?) and security (are there any weak points or vulnerabilities?). Get in touch for a professional evaluation to see which route’s better for you.

Can we definately resolve the outstanding issues?

Many clients who transfer their websites to us have a snagging list of issues; some small, some big. As WordPress specialists since 2010, there are few issues we’ve not seen and solved. Our technical team are adept problem solvers, patiently untangling and simplifying code into discrete working parts to identify the route cause and fix the issue. We’re always mindful of whether the time and effort needed to fix an issue is worth the value of fixing it; sometimes, finding an alternative solution can be better value.

Can I keep my domain name and SEO value?

Yes. If you already have a website, keeping your domain name is straightforward – all we’ll need is your domain login details. Keeping your existing SEO value is also possible with the correct migration plan, which is particularly important for older or larger sites to maintain the hard-earned SEO value you’ve built up.

How do we look after you?

You’ll have a dedicated Project Manager keeping everything on track and giving you regular updates in plain English. You’ll know what’s been done, what’s up next and anything we need from you. We track every request and question so nothing falls through the cracks. Your project manager will keep looking after you after the initial project is complete, organising reviews and catch ups so we stay in tune with your business and you get the most out of your website.
