Our team can handle site migrations to and from any webhost or service. Typically these take between 1-4 hours – though they can take longer if you’re stashing a large uploads folder around 20GB or more. In that case we may have some other recommendations! Your site will be exactly the same as it was before the migration as we take great care in creating backups before and after, carefully handling the database and uploading site files correctly. After the migration is complete – we can help update any DNS records to point to the new website (once we’ve all verified everything is identical and working properly).
- Themes, plugins & update folder migration
- Retain settings, customization & logins
- DNS updates (if needed)
- Database migration
- Post-migration Tests
- *Multisites may require extra time & cost

Site security is becoming more and more challenging on WordPress as the number of sites using the platform continues to skyrocket. We’ll employ various hardening techniques, login spam prevention, password control and many other tricks to prevent unwanted access to your site. We may recommend plugins like Sucuri or Wordfence if your host allows – even the free versions are fairly robust. If your site is already compromised we have a dedicated “unhacking” squad that can squash any site infection in a matter of hours. In the end – it will take some very high level hacking to gain access to your site once we’re done with it.
- Theme / plugin updates & checks
- Secret key roll & permission checks
- Backup creation & scheduling
- Hardening for future attacks
- Sucuri & WordFence Scans
- Firewall implementation
- WordPress core fixes

If you want to stay with your current host (or move to ours) – we can optimize your load times regardless. Our team has extensive experience with popular configurations that allows us to quickly identify areas where we can drastically improve performance. There are times when a new host is the only further optimization possible within an infrastructure. More often than not, however, we are able to streamline your existing site to eliminate the majority of your bottlenecks. We’ll use Pingdom and GTMetrix to evaluate speed improvements. Clients typically experience a savings of 2-4 seconds and in some cases more.
- Guaranteed 80 score or higher on GTMetrix
- Improve load speeds by an avg. of 2-4 sec.
