When everything’s looking perfect and you’re ready to go live, you’ll add a domain, point DNS, and ta-da! All done. (And don’t worry, we have walkthroughs for every single step!)

Absolutely! We know moving all of your WordPress sites from one host to another can be painful, but we love doing it. So much so, in fact, that we’ve hand-crafted 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, and you can track progress all along the way. If you send over dozens or hundreds of WordPress sites to be moved, we’re on it (at NO extra cost to you)! Just fill out this lil’ form and we’ll take care of the rest.
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 business hours.
Absolutely. When filling out the migration form, you’ll see an option to select your migration speed. We offer expedited migrations (within 8 business hours) for $49.
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.
