WordPress Migration

Migrate your WordPress to a modern, cheap, fast, and reliable server

Enough with server errors, unhelpful support, broken databases, and speed throttled. Migrate your WordPress to a modern, cheap, fast, and very reliable server.

Migration Package Features

  1. A Litespeed server that performs way better than Siteground, WP Engine, Kinsta, Cloudways, Linode, AWS, etc.
  2. No database connection errors, the type you see on Hostgator.
  3. No limited PHP settings (like WPX does by default on all hosting packages). This server offers flexibility to tweak your hosting package.
  4. No WordPress-managed hosting that cuts down your website speed.
  5. Enhanced Site and Email security
  6. Daily backups (free app). Note that other hosts will charge you a lot of money for a backup feature you should be getting for free.
  7. Reliable and skilled Hosting support (rare to find on cheap hosting packages).
  8. No unjustified limits on hosting resources. Hosting accounts can burst up to 400% (memory and CPU allocation).
  9. 600,000 inodes (Linux files)
  10. 50 GB SSDisk

Ι will personally make sure that your hosting package is tweaked to maximum performance and -optionally- I could take a look at your WP site speed.


Are You Ready to Migrate to a Reliable Server?


With the standard hosting options and a .com domain, the migration can be completed in 2 days. Standard options are website transfer, email account transfer, and DNS changes.

In comparison to the old server, the new server environment may have different software versions or settings (such as PHP, MySQL, or Apache). And experience shows it does. This may result in problems with the plugins or themes that work with your WordPress website.

Large data transfers can be error-prone and time-consuming, especially when transferring WordPress files, databases, media uploads, and other assets. It is vital to ensure a seamless transfer with no data loss.

I have transferred up to 31 GB of data for an eshop and I'm aware of the challenges. Most of the time the server zip feature won't work and you find out there are files missing i.e. product images and the likes.

DNS modifications must take time to spread over the internet after moving to a new server. Users might view the outdated version of the website or see sporadic access difficulties during this time. DNS and cache will be an issue. Till it's propagated the website will be kind of standing on two boats. You need to be experienced to deal with content issues.

Another pain, not to mention another level of complexity if you're going to deal with Google Workspace emails, any third-party support service, chat functionality or email managing service. To prevent emails from being seen as spam or not being delivered at all, you must make sure that email functionality is set up correctly on the new server if your WordPress site sends emails (for example, for user registrations, password resets, or notifications). SPF, DMARC and DKIM records are in order.

Different servers may have different file ownership and permissions, which might cause problems with file access or security flaws. For your WordPress site to operate properly, you must make sure that permissions are set appropriately. File permissions are a very common WordPress problem, check with your host if you can't solve it.

The new server's database configuration needs to meet WordPress specifications. Most hosts offer an easy WordPress setup but some hosts i.e. Hostgator generate frequent and unsolvable database connection errors. In that case find a new host.

In order to preserve safe connections if your website uses HTTPS, you must make sure the SSL certificate is correctly loaded and configured on the new server. Pretty smooth transition on modern hosts.

To avoid broken links or missing assets, any hardcoded URLs or links on your WordPress site (such as those in posts, pages, or theme files) may need to be adjusted to match the new domain or directory structure. I'm talking about placing redirects old page to new page. Brace yourself, you will be inserting a lot of them.

The CPU, RAM, and disk speed of the new server can all have an effect on how quickly and responsively your WordPress website loads. That said most modern servers are at the same level. Don't buy into the fast server hype.

Extensive testing is required upon migration to guarantee that every part of the WordPress site is operating as intended. Users should have a seamless transition by minimizing downtime and swiftly identifying and resolving any difficulties.
