My web hosting company, SiteGround, is currently offering a great deal to anyone who would like to migrate their WordPress website to their service that includes free website migration. This promotion ends on September 8, so if you have been thinking about switching web hosting providers but have been putting it off because of the hassle that is involved, you will want to act now. When I moved to SiteGround this past March, I used their Website Migration service and the transfer was totally painless and problem free.
I wrote about my decision to change hosting providers back in March shortly after I switched to SiteGround. Check out how my Google crawl rate increased with the increased speed I got after making the transition in Googlebot Loves Me Now. Besides the increased speed I’m getting from SiteGround, their support is second to none. Support tickets I create are answered quickly by people who actually know what they are talking about, unlike my experience with my previous hosting provider. I couldn’t be happier with my decision!
I was so impressed by SiteGround after switching to them, that I became an affiliate marketer for them. Should you choose to click on the links in this article to migrate to SiteGround, I will earn a small commission from them which helps to keep this website running, but does not cost you anything extra. You can’t beat free website migration when it comes with such a great hosting company!
SiteGround hosting accounts purchased between the promotion run dates of September 1st to September 8th come with the following additional benefits.
Free Website Migration
SiteGround will migrate one website to your new account free of charge. You can claim it in the getting started wizard upon your first login, or later by visiting the Support Tab in the User Area.
Free Domain Transfer
One free domain transfer can be claimed per account purchased during the promotional period, given that no free domain has been registered during sign-up. The domain transfer can be claimed by visiting the Add Services Tab -> Domain Transfer. It must be claimed by October 8th.
The free domain transfer must be for one of these tlds: .com, .net, .org, .biz, or .info. For clients from certain countries, the local country-specific domains may also be available for free.
Free Hosting For Early Switch
SiteGround will compensate up to 6 months of hosting time, matching the remaining term you have prepaid with your previous hosting provider.
