You won’t find a smoother way to move
Our migration tools and protocols are specifically designed to guarantee successful and hassle-free WordPress migrations.
Fast and efficient
91% of our done-for-you migrations are completed in 24 hours or less. Migrating yourself with our automated tool is even faster.
Any site, any size
Our advanced migration system is built specifically to handle any type of site (and multisite) from small, big, to gigantic.
During the migration process we create an exact copy of your site, meaning it’s still live and kicking while we’re moving it.
Our migration experts are located all around the world, so someone is available, 24/7/365. If an urgent migration is needed our team is there.
No plugin needed
Our server-to-server ((S)FTP-driven) migration tool is faster and more reliable than using a plugin (PHP-driven) and saves you the hassle of another install.
Setup for success
Every step of our DIY and done-for-you migrations (from providing admin/host info, to WP Install Path) is designed to ensure the smoothest move possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
This depends on a few factors - like the size of the site in question and which migration method you choose. We crunched the numbers and found that 91% of our “done-for-you” migrations are completed in 24 hours or less. Migrating yourself with our automated tool is even faster as you can skip any queues and you have more control over the process. But again, it largely depends on what you’re working with.
No, during the initial site migration, we create a copy of your site and put it on a temporary domain so you can review it. The only disruption may occur during DNS propagation. When this happens visitors may see a mix of your previously hosted site, or your new WPMU DEV hosted site.
Of course! We’ll happily and quickly move any number of sites to our hosting - for free. There have been multiple occasions where we’ve moved 100+ sites over for members. This is true whether you use our automated tool (DIY), or submit a manual migration request (we do it for you).
If you’re new to this, or simply don’t have time to take care of the migration yourself - having us migrate your sites is an easy and stress-free option. We’ll also be able to take care of any issues that could occur right on the spot. If you know what you’re doing, you have the FTP credentials for your site(s), and have the time to migrate yourself - our DIY tool makes the process super simple and fast. If you encounter any issues you can always contact 24/7 support as well.
You betcha! Both of our migration methods can handle multisite migrations, no problem.
We know adding domains and pointing nameservers can be frustrating at the best of times - especially if you’re moving a lot of sites. You can read our full DNS guide here, or reach out to us via 24/7 live chat / private ticket for help at any time.
Once your site(s) has been migrated to WPMU DEV Hosting, it will be available on a temporary domain (yoursite.tempurl.host) for you to check the content. Once you’re happy everything looks good it’s time to change the DNS records for your domain and add the domain to our hosting. That’s the TL;DR version anyway. We have a full “Go Live Checklist” that takes you through every step if you could use a roadmap. Of course, there’s always our support heroes if all else fails.
Over 300 successful migrations to our hosting every month. 91% are completed in 24 hours or less.
