Website Hosting:

We highly recommend Flywheel WordPress hosting. It’s fast and secure and the best customer service we’ve seen.

Migrating Website Hosts or Switching Hosts

If you need to move your website from one host to another (especially if your website is slow), you have a couple options.

  1. Move to a host that will do it for you for free (Like Flywheel!)
  2. Migrate it yourself using a plugin such as All-In-One WP Migration
  3. Hire a pro like our friend Scott at NetCrafted to do it for you to make sure nothing gets missed.

Either way, once your site has been migrated, make sure to test it and especially the contact forms to make sure everything looks good!
