Why Choose Us For Website Migrations?
We pride ourselves on being transparent and informative.
Scoping is a crucial step of any website migration plan. Whether it’s migrating from one hosting provider to another or replatforming to a new Content Management System, we analyse your current online services and DNS records to ensure when the final cut across is made, there is minimal to no downtime for your website, email or other related services.
Simple hosting migrations can take as little as 2 hours to complete.
If you have more than just a website to migrate, the process can take up to one day, depending on file and server size and any conflicts between the new and old service that may need to be resolved.
The timeframe to complete replatforming depends on many variables.
- What is the current and destination CMS?
- How much content and pages are on the website?
- Whether the site is informational or eCommerce.
- How many products need to be migrated?
- Are there any previous customisations that need to be reinstated?
- Does the website have any integrations to a CRM or ERP?
As a ballpark guide, a simple informational website can take as little as one day to complete. Ecommerce websites can take as little as two days.
You might be frustrated with your current website CMS and would like to move across to a CMS that’s easier to use or more flexible.
Whilst we work with a variety of Content Management Systems, the most common migration is to WordPress, and there is a good reason why. Around 65% of websites in Australia are using WordPress.
We are always happy to have a chat about what potential platform is suitable for your goals, speak with one of our friendly migration specialists on 0423 807 424 or send a message via our contact page.
For customers who want to ensure no search rankings are impacted, we take migrations one step further to ensure all vital on-page SEO is moved across to the new platform, including:
- Image Alt Tags
- Internal Links
- Title & Meta Descriptions
- Heading optimisations
- Permalinks & URLS
Furthermore, we can ensure all URLs are kept the same or appropriately redirected as required to eliminate confusion and duplicate pages on Google.
Once the project is complete, we can also re-submit a new sitemap to Google so the Googlebot can crawl your new website.
No problems, it’s common that you may have lost or never had top-level logins to your CMS or Web Host control panel.
We assist many customers in communicating with the proper channels on their behalf in order to regain access required for website migrations or replatforming.
No, all work is carried out by our local Australian team to ensure maximum data security and best practices are adhered to.
