Frequently asked questions
Is the migration of my WordPress site really free?
Yes, we’ll move your site from your current host to WPhost for free. The migration costs you nothing!
I have a bunch of WordPress websites, will you move them all?
Yes, we know migrating sites from one host to another can be painful. No matter how many sites you have, we’ll migrate your WordPress sites for free.
How long will the WordPress migration take?
It depends on the size and complexity of your site. We say 1-3 business days, however most migrations are completed within 24-hours.
Will my site go down during the transfer?
No, we move a copy of your WordPress site to WPhost and put it on a temporary domain for you to review. When you’re ready to go live, we’ll take care of any domain name transfer, we’ll even configure your DNS records to repoint your domain, and you’ll only have to wait for DNS propagation.
Will my WordPress website be faster on WPhost?
Most likely! But, your site on WPhost comes with so many more features than just the fastest WordPress hosting speed. Check out our managed WordPress hosting NZ page for everything included with your WordPress hosting plan.
Will my plugin work with WPhost?
There are a few categories of plugins that either duplicate functionality that WPhost already provides, or are known performance-killers on sites. We do our best to make sure that your site is running as fast and secure as possible. As a NZ managed WordPress host, our goal is to make sure you’re starting out with a site that just works. And in the times when it doesn’t, our WordPress experts are here to help. You can view a list of plugins that aren’t allowed on WPhost here.
Who handles my transfer?
WPhost handles all migrations. This means your site is being moved by WordPress experts. We do not use third-party migration services so you can sit back and relax and let WPhost deal with the details!
