We know how painful it can be to move a WordPress site from one server to another, and that’s why we help our customers migrate their sites – for free!
Simply fill out our secure migration request form with some details about your existing hosting, and we’ll get your site transferred and set up as a demo site under your Flywheel account. You can then review the site to see how everything performs, and make sure everything is in place.
Free migrations are completed within three business days—typically less. We also offer expedited migrations, which are guaranteed within 8 business hours, for $49.
If you’re curious, these are roughly the steps we perform to move your site and make sure everything is working great:
We take a backup either via WordPress or by pulling down the files via FTP.
We then upload all of the files and database to that demo site.
Search the database making sure to switch any old urls to the new one.
On request, we’ll be happy to run a scan so you can rest easy that the site is malware-free.
We verify that the site is running properly and that everything appears to be in working order before passing it off.
We transfer ownership of the site to you, and notify you that it’s ready to go.
Once the site is transferred to you, you simply pay for the site, point your DNS, and you’re live on Flywheel. Switching hosting companies has never been easier.
If you’d like to get started, simply fill out our secure migration request form and we’ll get started right way!
