How long does migration take?

The time and complexity of your migration depends on several key factors:

  • The amount of content you have (how many posts or users)
  • The number of plugins or size of your custom codebase on your site
  • The number of sites, if you’re using WordPress multisite

For many customers, migrations can be completed in about 4 weeks, including importing your content and media, adapting your codebase, testing and quality assurance, and the final go-live switchover.

What does a migration process look like?

To help de-stress your migration, we recommend breaking the process down into four distinct steps:

  1. Determining your migration and content strategy
  2. Preparing your codebase
  3. Testing and pre-launch preparation
  4. Final data migration and switchover

We recommend adapting and extending this process for your specific needs. Our technical account managers can advise you on which factors to consider, and you can work with one of our agency partners to guide you through migrating.
