When You’ve Got To Go, You’ve Got To Go!
Migrating a website is a daunting prospect, but in most cases, it’s pretty straight-forward. If you just need to move host for a WordPress website, for example, that’s something we do a lot. For some websites, a rebuild on a new server works just as well and creates an opportunity to start afresh whilst still deploying current content.
The most comprehensive need for migrations that I come across are those for Ecommerce websites. These are relatively data-heavy sites with lots of products, orders and user information to come over. E-commerce websites tend to have more integrations with external services too – such as Email marketing services, supply chain, inventory management, drop shippers, sales channels, shipping and payment providers.
Having migrated my own Ecommerce store (The Useful Shop – currently residing on Shopify, check it out!) several times over the past 18 years, and over 1500 live product lines at the last, this is a path and process I know well. I certainly understand the anxieties, as well as the technical implications of a digital business migration.
Migrate from Weebly to WordPress, WIX to Joomla, WordPress to Shopify, Volusion to WooCommerce, or whatever combination of source and destination website platform you need.
