What you get with this Hourlie

Got a WordPress website, and need to move it to a new hosting provider, or you're looking to make a development website live? Want to change the domain of your WordPress site, but worried you might get it wrong - or just don't know how to do it?

I have migrated many hundreds of websites - including WordPress - between many different hosting providers. I also run my own hosting service, so this kind of thing is a common occurrence. When it comes to WordPress there are several plugins out there to do this, and you might find information on automated methods. They're not reliable - it's far safer to do the migration manually.

I have high speed connections to the Internet, a fast working method and the knowledge to get your website moved quickly and without issue. If it's a blog or other non-transactional website, I would be able to do the move (in most cases) with zero downtime. In the case of transactional websites (such as e-commerce stores, etc) there may be a small amount of downtime, to ensure there is no data loss. Data loss for e-commerce websites results in problems with your legal obligations, as well as potentially unhappy customers when they don't receive the order that they put through... just as everything was being swapped.

Included in the service:
* Full backup of WordPress files, content and database - up to 500MB in size
* Hassle-free migration to your new hosting provider (your new hosting provider should be ready to go - unless you are purchasing hosting from me)
* Full testing of the website (requires WordPress admin login)
* Domain change (if requested)
* Help and advice with changing DNS settings for your domain

What's not included?
* Transferring of emails from one provider to another
* Transferring of non-WordPress websites or applications

Additional services are available as addons.

Why work with me?
I'm a highly experienced web developer and systems administrator working across a broad range of software and hardware technologies since 2000 - that's a lot of key presses! I've built and managed many WordPress websites, along with working for large companies with complex needs in various sectors. I recognise that business websites are extremely important to the success of any business, and yours would be no exception. That hopefully gives you the confidence to work with me. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message.

I look forward to working with you soon!
