WordPress Migration

Transfer your existing blog to a self-hosted WordPress Blog

Are you ready to make the switch to a self-hosted WordPress blog? Here’s where you get started! If you have questions regarding the process, please read on the internet, there are tons of tutorials explaining why WordPress is the premier web platform.

  1. You look around and find someone you’d like to hire to transfer your blog (Hi there!). You decide on SMD and spend a little time on this page.
  2. You get a domain name. If you’ve already got a domain name, great! If not, you’ll need to purchase one. If you’d like, I can purchase the domain name for you as part of the packaged deal I offer*.
  3. You need web hosting. Spilled Milkshake Designs provides web hosting at $4.95/month or $50/year. Or, you can sign up for your own hosting. Some top recommended hosting providers are HostGator, BlueHost, and DreamHost.
  4. You complete this form.
  5. I’ll be in touch shortly to take care of the rest.

*The packaged deal is $5 off the cost of the transfer and includes the purchase of your domain name and your first month of hosting through my hosting company, C-C Hosting. In essence, you do nothing and I take care of everything. Hosting will be billed at $4.95/month starting your second month and the domain name will need to be renewed yearly for approximately $15.
