Migration & Hosting Support
With our unparalleled WordPress development services, we can help you migrate to WordPress from any other CMS or eCommerce platform conveniently, securely, and seamlessly.
If you’re already using WordPress and wish to change hosting providers, we can handle the migration for you with no downtime. If you’re curious about our recommendation for a hosting provider, look no further than Cloudways.
With Cloudways, setting up a new WordPress installation is a breeze. You can create a server from various providers, such as Digital Ocean, Linode, Vultr, AWS, and Google Cloud Platform.
After choosing your server provider, you can then select a size. We recommend starting with a server with at least 2GB of RAM; however, consider heavy traffic starting with 4GB of RAM if you expect heavy traffic.
Finally, you’re able to select a location for your server. Of course, you’ll want your server to be nearest to where your customers are.
However, one thing to keep in mind is that you cannot change providers after your server provisions, so analyze the cost and configuration of each. In our experience, Digital Ocean has provided superb servers with the least cost.
While there are plenty of hosting providers out there, few offer all the services you can get from Cloudways. For example, with each server, you can run your instance of Redis, a caching “database” that can help speed up your website.
However, don’t let this deter you; we’re more than capable of working with your existing hosting provider!
With WordPress having one of the largest and most active communities out there, it should be no surprise that there are thousands of plugins made for it.
However, choosing the right plugin is critical as plugins can affect page load times, create security concerns, and more.
We know which plugins work the best and how to customize them to work precisely for your needs.
Some plugins we recommend are:
- Complianz Privacy Suite
- Gravity Forms
- iThemes Security Pro
- Rank Math
- Redis Object Cache
- ShortPixel Image Optimizer
- Simply Schedule Appointments
- WP Rocket
- … and more!
The one great benefit of working with us is that you won’t have to purchase most plugins yourself; we already have you covered!
WordPress Customization for Speed Optimization
However, your choices aren’t limited to those two, as we can work with any theme to bring your vision to life!
No Need To Worry About Maintenance
The goal is to improve user experience and speed the loading time of your website, whether it is a small business site or an entirely custom WordPress CMS.
We not only offer the most reliable WordPress development services, but we can also help you with ongoing maintenance and support.
We can set up backups on the server and WordPress level at regular intervals to ensure your data is safe and you always have a backup to use in case of an error.
As with our all web development services, our WordPress Development & Maintenance service includes our search engine optimization service; which includes a detailed technical SEO audit to evaluate the health of your website based on its performance, response time, and overall search engine optimization score.
Frequently Asked Questions
WordPress is extensible; whether you don’t know any coding or you’re an expert, you can build a superb website much quicker than developing a custom application. Perhaps best of all is it has a blogging component built-in, and blogs attract users and users (hopefully) become customers!
Though it has a thriving community with a wealth of plug-ins, you have to be careful. First, if you install too many plug-ins or poorly designed plug-ins, it can slow down your site. Premium plug-ins are typically the way to go, but they can be costly and usually are subscription-based.

- Since you’re working with an agency, you most likely won’t have to purchase plugins for your website as you can use our license.
- Your website will receive ongoing maintenance and backups regularly.
