Ready to move sites to Flywheel but don't want to deal with the details?
No problem, we'll migrate your WordPress sites — for free!
If you don't already have a Flywheel account, sign up. Then fill out our migration form so we can get the information we need to move your site.
We’ll log in to your WordPress site and download a copy of it. Your site will never go down during this process!
We’ll take the copy of your site and move to a Flywheel demo server. You’ll be able to view your site fully functioning before going live.
Once you’re happy with your site on Flywheel, we let you choose a payment plan for your site. If it’s a client site, you have the option of transferring billing to them.
Still not ready? Here are some questions we hear a lot!
We mean zero dollars! We'll move your site from your current host to Flywheel for free. We only ask you to choose a hosting plan for your site when you're happy. The migration costs you nothing.
Yep! We know migrating sites from one host can be painful, but we love doing it! 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. However, most migrations are completed within 24 hours. 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.
Most likely! We're happy to migrate your site so you can compare it with your current host. If you're happy with the performance, we can help you choose a plan. Oh, and did we mention that your site on Flywheel comes with more than just great speed? Check out our pricing page for everything included with your plan.
Absolutely. When filling out the migration form, you'll see an option to select your migration speed. We offer expedited migrations (under 8 hours) for $49. We also prioritize sites that are being migrated to a paid plan, so to move your migration to the front of the queue, create and pay for a site before submitting the migration form, or instruct our team to migrate to an already paid site.
We do our best to make sure that your site is running as fast and secure as possible. This includes helping with plugin recommendations. You can view a list of plugins that aren't allowed on Flywheel here. If you have a question about your current sites setup and how it will function on Flywheel, contact us.
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.
