Is Your WordPress Hosting Company Sub Par?
If your current hosting company has frequent performance issues or their technical team blames every problem on your CMS solution, it’s time to migrate your website to a new host. WordPress migration is a necessity once you realize your hosting company isn’t everything they’ve promised. It happens. But know you can take matters into your own hands and we’ll help you in that process.
If you need help moving your live WordPress website from one hosting company to another, we can help. You don’t have to worry about backups, databases, server config files, or anything else. We will do it for you.
A hosting transfer will normally cost around $150-$400, depending on the size of your website or blog. The cost varies based on the number of images, files, and plugins.
Our Recommendations for WordPress Migration
Because we work with a wide range of clients, we’ve used a lot of hosting companies. Some hosting companies just seem to have issues with a database driven website. We stay away from those and we encourage our clients to go with hosting companies we know provide excellent support and reliable performance.
For shared hosting environments, we suggest Liquid Web or WP Engine due to their strong technical support and their ability to provide consistently high performance and speed. For dedicated hosting situations, we prefer Rackspace. No one beats Rackspace for pre-sales and post-sales support. Their technology is solid and their technical support team best in class. And yes, we are an affiliate for BlueHost and a Rackspace partner. Our recommendations are not monetarily based, but based on performance. We have aligned with these two firms for a reason and they are all good ones.
