Common Types Of Website Migrations

WordPress Migration Projects

WordPress migration is one of our most popular migration services. We have done hundreds of WordPress projects and have mastered the process of perfectly migrating this platform with no downtime. For our WordPress migration service our standard migration process is to take backups of the wordpress site, move the files, move the database, move any emails associated with the domain name and update the nameservers to point to the hosting service.

In most cases we can migrate a WordPress website in 48 hours or less. In certain more complex situations it may take up to 72 hours but those are rare. We have migrated to and from thousands of web hosts and rarely find a web host service that we have not worked with in the past. If you want to get your WordPress site migrated without any hassle, Sharp Tack Media is the best company for your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Migrating your website includes moving your website from one host to another host and may even entail moving it to a new domain.

The first step is to find a new host to migrate to or new domain to migrate to. We can give recommendations for new hosts based on your needs or if you have already done the research we can work with that too. We’ll make sure that you won’t end up where you started. We’ll hear your problems out and help you choose an appropriate hosting service that won’t give you any trouble.

Well handle everything from file transfer to DNS configurations. All you have to do is sit back and relax. We’ll be able to get the website up and running on your new host within a day or two.

Average website migration services costs start at around $250. With Sharp Tack Media, we’ll give you industry standard website migration services starting at only $125. That’s a steal compared to our competitors. 

This price includes general website migration services such as backups, file transfer, DNS updates, data integrity checking and our exhaustive QA process.

We can usually schedule migrations within 1 week from the time a deposit is paid. We also offer emergency migrations that can be completed within 48 hours at a slightly higher rate.

You can pay us with PayPal, ACH Transfer, WIre or most Credit Cards. All migrations required a 50% deposit.

We have done thousands of migrations and have developed a system that allows us to migrate websites with virtually no downtime. There is sometimes and hour or 2 of downtime if DNS propagation is slow but we specialize in migrating websites as quickly as possible with the least amount of downtime possible.

As stated above, there should be very little downtime but you may choose any hours for going live. If you want your site to go live to when you think it would be the most beneficial, then we’d be more than happy to accommodate your request. Just remember to let us know in advance.

If you are using a third party application for your emails like Google Mail, there will be no interruption. But if you are using emails on your hosting box located in your hosting provider, there will be a short downtime while the site is being migrated. You don’t need to worry, however, because you will still receive those emails once the migration is complete so you won’t lose any of your emails.

Yes, we will set up your emails on the new host with email migration. We can copy emails from your former email account to your new email account on the new host you’re using. You can choose to migrate both from external accounts, like Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo.

Both emails and folders can be migrated. The emails are placed in a folder with the name of the account you are migrating from.

Unfortunately, the only way our professionals here at Sharp Tack Media can properly give you an accurate estimate is by logging into your site. And we can only do that if you give us your login details. 

One way we can get around this is if you create a temporary account for us with limited capabilities. Once created, however, we might encounter some problems because of the limited privileges. We might need you to be online with us if we need additional permissions.

Another solution would just be to change your logins once we’re done with the estimates.

To schedule your migration today send us a message here or give us a call at 503-451-6675. We’ll give you our personal guarantee of our services. We hope to hear from you soon!
