Automated migration service that many companies advertise suppose to enables you to migrate your site content from whatever CMS you are using to WordPress, Joomla, Expression Engine, Drupal to name a few accurately and flawlessly. You don’t have to be concerned about any data losses, everything will be done precisely and in a few minutes. You don’t have to spent hours of copy/pasting in order to migrate all your site content.....
The truth however is different. In almost 99% of the automatic migrations you will end up with lots of trash data and even more complex problems to solve. There is no such a thing like automatic migrations unless you have a very simple site with a few pages and not using any modules or plugins.
Once you ask for an automatic migration for a large site with a couple of modules then the price is getting so high because simply a human should do the work....
Here at Guru-host, we've done migrations from several Content Management Systems and Ecommerce to the most well known systems including our custom CMS (Guru CMS). We will analyze and perform the migration manually, checking every single aspect of your web site to ensure that everything will run smoothly after trasnfering your data to the new system.
All work is done offline, locally in our servers. Once we finish we will give you access to our development environment in order to check yourself that everything is working as it should be. Once you are happy with the result, we will sync the changes/data to your production web site.
In most cases this require a very little downtime, from a couple of minutes to a few hours depending of course the size of your data.
Joomla, Prestashop, Wordpress, Guru CMS, Expression Engine and Drupal are the platforms that we are very used to. Having said that, we can perform any migration as everything is data for us :)
