Migrate my WordPress


Migrate your WordPress website to new hosting.

SKU: SD-WPMIGRATE-34 Category: Tags: ,

Product Description

Migrate your WordPress website to another host using dedicated WordPress developers through Silicon Dales.

Opening Accounts

Using a full run down of your website environment, gleaned during a consultation, an expert WordPress developer will work with you to setup a new hosting account, CDN and any other useful services which have been agreed.

Once these accounts are fully live and operational, with the right software installed and appropriate payment methods entered (just so those free trial periods don’t catch you out), the migration process will begin.


We have a great deal of experience working with various DNS settings and sometimes, depending on your setup, we may kick off some DNS changes up to 3 days before beginning the migration.


During your site inspection and consultation appropriate migration windows will have been identified which are usually the quietest periods of traffic or transactions.


Before migrating, your WordPress website’s database and files will be backed up.


Depending on your setup, there may be different methods employed for the migration. The database and files will be moved to your new hosting accounts.


Once the content of the WordPress website has been moved, the site will be “re-wired” with the new location. DNS, security certificate, email settings and more will be updated and tested.

Bedding-in Period

After a migration there may be one or two loose ends to tie up. A piece of custom code we didn’t know about, or a third party service which needs your new IP address. Whatever it is, there’s a period of troubleshooting in which to check and test the new environment (up to 30 developer minutes – timed, up to 5 working days following migration).

SEO Changes

It is expected that after moving to significantly superior hosting, a site will see an initial fall-off in traffic, followed by an all-round improvement.

Top-level assistance for your project

Whatever your setup or project needs, Silicon Dales has deep experience with every facet of the WordPress stack, with a focus on delivering Return on Investment. Our web development and project management experience means you get top-level assistance for your project – see our case studies for examples.


Silicon Dales has experience working with WordPress since 2005 on hundreds of different client sites with a wide range of use cases and challenges.

From specialist security and network requirements through to ultra-high traffic and large product feeds, Silicon Dales can advise on a number of approaches to using WordPress for different business needs.


We mainly work with WordPress websites which feature some form of eCommerce, usually through WooCommerce. Almost any WooCommerce based website is complex – because you are handling a lot more than just content: orders, shipping rules, tax rules, transactions, transactional email.

Each element will need to be setup and maintained for your particular business, meaning solutions must go beyond the standardized or the automated.

Caring for the mission critical

If your WordPress website must maintain 100% uptime and real-time backups for transactions, it makes business sense to have expert WordPress developers, such as Silicon Dales, handle changes or updates with experience and care.
