Absolutely! We know moving WordPress sites from one host to another can be painful, but we love doing it; so much so that we’ve created a smooth and seamless process for “group migrations,” so we’re easily able to transfer your sites over to Flywheel on a schedule that works for you and your clients. If you send over dozens or hundreds of WordPress sites to be moved, we're on it!
Nope! We move a copy of your WordPress site to Flywheel and put it on a temporary domain for you to review. When you're ready to go live, you'll repoint your domain and will only have to wait for DNS propagation. During the process, visitors may see your previously hosted site, or your new Flywheel hosted site, but they should never experience an outage.
It depends heavily on the complexity and size of your site. Most migrations are completed within 24 hours, however. If you need a migration completed faster, you can select our “Expedited Migration” option while filling out the site migration form. Expedited Migrations cost $49, and will be migrated within 8 hours.
Absolutely. When filling out the migration form, you'll see an option to select your migration speed. We offer expedited migrations (under 8 business hours) for $49.

We handle all migrations internally at Flywheel. This means your site is being moved by a WordPress expert with years of experience developing WordPress sites. We do not work with third-party migration services so you can trust it's in good hands. If you have questions during the migration process, you can contact support at anytime.
We do our best to make sure that your site is running as fast and secure as possible. This includes helping with plugin recommendations.
