Frequently Asked Questions about WordPress Migration
We understand that you have questions about our approach to WordPress Migration. We're here to provide the answers. If your question isn't listed here, feel free to ask it during our initial consultation.More questions? Let's talk!
WordPress Migration is the process of moving your WordPress website from one hosting environment to another. This could mean moving to a new hosting provider, changing domains, or moving from a local server to a live one.
There are many reasons for migrating a website, such as upgrading to a more robust hosting provider, rebranding with a new domain, or launching a site that’s been developed locally. We provide this service to ensure a seamless and hassle-free transition.
We aim to minimize downtime during a migration. In most cases, your website will remain live, and any downtime – if it occurs – will be during off-peak hours.
While there is always a minimal risk in data transfer, our expert team follows best practices and uses reliable tools to ensure data integrity during the migration process. Plus, we always perform backups before starting the migration.
Absolutely! We specialize in migrating websites to WordPress from other Content Management Systems (CMS), including but not limited to Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, and Wix.
If you’re using our WordPress Design, SEO, or Hosting services, WordPress Migration is a complementary service. For example, after migrating your website, we can optimize its performance, secure it, or provide ongoing management.
Once the migration is successfully completed, we perform thorough checks to ensure everything functions as it should. We also offer additional services such as WordPress Management and WordPress Backups to ensure your site remains secure and performs optimally.
Our objective was to design a sleek, modern, and user-friendly website that showcases the firm’s extensive legal expertise and diverse practice areas. The website’s “practice areas” section highlights the firm’s broad capabilities, while the “lawyers” page provides an in-depth look at the individual lawyers and their specialized areas of practice.
To ensure the website’s content remained up-to-date and easily manageable, we developed a custom WordPress backend solution, enabling the us (or the client) to quickly and easily maintain all content without a hassle.
Like all Becker Design websites, the Wardell site is lightning fast, effortless to navigate, and works flawlessly on any device.
Ready to embark on a WordPress Migration journey? The process unfolds in four key steps: a meeting, a proposal, migration implementation, and ongoing support.
Let’s Chart the Course
Every successful migration begins with a meeting.
Once you contact us and share some details about your WordPress Migration project, we’ll schedule a time for a remote meeting (via Zoom or a traditional phone call). These first meetings usually last between thirty to sixty minutes.
We’ll discuss every facet of your migration — from the complexity and scope of the migration, all the critical deliverables, to your timeframe and budget.
Gaining a comprehensive understanding of your requirements and how your business operates is the foundation of step two.
Proposal, Strategy, & Launch
After we grasp your business, your needs, and your goals for the WordPress Migration, we’ll prepare a detailed migration proposal for your consideration.
Our proposals encompass everything you need to make an informed decision about collaborating with us. They include an outline of the migration plan, a complete breakdown of all tasks, associated costs, and an explanation of our methodologies, our terms, and any other crucial logistical info.
Nothing is set in stone — we can modify a proposal until it precisely meets your needs. And there’s no pressure. Even if you decide not to work with us, we hope our meeting, discovery, and proposal drafting process advances you towards your ultimate goal.
If our proposal aligns with your needs and you want to proceed with us, the next step is to begin the project and start the migration implementation phase.
Migrate, Test, & Refine
All our migration tasks are executed on a secure, private server that only you and Becker Design can access. A cloned version of your site can be accessed on the web soon after the project officially starts, even though there may not be much to see initially while we handle the migration steps behind the scenes.
Your existing website remains untouched. It will continue to function as usual while your migration is being performed and perfected in parallel.
The migration process is only finished when you’re fully satisfied. It’s our job to conduct the migration and then refine it to perfection based on your feedback and guidance.
Once the migration process is complete, we’ll integrate the migrated site into your live domain without disrupting your regular operations. Congratulations, your website has successfully migrated! But our work doesn’t end here.
Launch, Monitor & Maintain
A completed migration isn’t the end, but a new beginning. It requires regular monitoring and updates to accommodate your business’s growth, changes, and the evolving web landscape.
Becker Design supports the migrated sites for as long as they’re active. For some clients, this has been a 10+ year journey involving continuous monitoring, testing, and optimization as web technology has advanced.
Rest assured, your migrated website will not only serve your needs but also stay updated, secure, and efficient for a long, long time. We’ll ensure everything runs smoothly behind the scenes, your site remains fast, error-free, reliable, and secure. We’ll also make sure any enhancements in tools, systems, and software updates occur seamlessly, keeping your site at the forefront of technology.
