The answer is because we use a simple but highly effective WordPress migration checklist. No matter the size of the website, having a migration checklist helps to speed up the entire migration process because it avoids mistakes, overlooks and of course, it is easy to follow even for our latest team members.

A website migration often occurs when the website owner decides to migrate the WordPress site to a new web hosting.

We even have nameserver change feature and after-sales support because we realize that with both of these, we are able to increase our overall lifetime value of a client by at least 300%!
Having a checklist for WordPress migration goes a long, long way. Our team loves using the WordPress migration checklist because they can easily counter-check their work (to ensure nothing is left out) and it is standardized across every migration service we do.
