Many of our clients use WordPress, it's an extremely popular platform allowing much flexibility and creativity, without requiring coding experience. Very often clients who want to use our hosting service have an existing WordPress website, which they want to keep, but prefer an enviromentally conscious host - that's us!
We understand that the idea of moving your website from one host to another can be incredibly daunting, so we offer a service that takes the work off your hands. We can transfer your existing WordPress website (and e-mails) from your current host or from wordpress.com (where WordPress itself is the host) over to us. This is done with the utmost care and minimal disruption to ensure everything switches quickly and safely.
Sian Conway from #EthicalHour
"I'm really impressed with the service I received from Green Hosting. I was nervous about moving my site over in case anything got lost or broken but they guided me through the whole process, answered all my questions in plain English and kept me updated at every stage. They handled the whole switch over for me and it went smoothly. Not only have they made my site more sustainable but it's actually much faster now too!"
"You're a dream, thank you, best service I've ever had in my life from a hosting company!"
Laura Turner from Fuzzfox
"Thank you, I'm so happy to be powered by the wind now! So lovely to deal with real and wonderful people too who went above and beyond to make the whole process of switching a breeze (pun intended!)"
Sam Attard from Ethical Revolution
"Thank YOU for providing such a brilliant service! Honestly, before starting Ethical Revolution all those years ago I used to provide web solutions for businesses and so I have had plenty of experience of web hosts. Even without the amazing green credentials you guys are the best!"
If you're thinking of switching your WordPress website to us, feel free to drop us a line first so we can take talk it through, take a look at your website and get a good idea of what needs to be done. If you've already made your mind up that's great too - Go ahead and sign up for a hosting plan and let us know you'd like to switch.
The next step is to agree a good a day and time to do the work. We agree a mutual time so that we can be in contact with you during the transfer if we need to and ensure everything runs smoothly. We'll ask you to change some settings for your domain name, or we can do that for you too if you prefer. The transfer will be handled by us and we'll let you know when everything is complete.
The price starts at £25 for a website transfer and varies depending on whether you'd like to transfer e-mail accounts too and if you're coming from another host or wordpress.com. Get in touch with us and we can let you know the price for your transfer.
Because WordPress is such a hugely popular platform (with around 400 million users) it can be a rife target for exploitation from hackers. However, there are ways to boost your website's security by using a few techniques to make it difficult for them to gain access. We have a provided some guidance on how to add these security measures but if you'd like us to do it for you, that's no problem, just give us a shout.
If you don't already have a website but would like to have WordPress installed for you with the security features, then we can do that too.
