Today, I’m proud to announce the launch of our very own host-agnostic WordPress migration plugin: Migrate Guru!
Since we first started, BlogVault has grown to become a major player in the field of WordPress backups. A huge contributor to our growth has been the fact that our subscribers came to us to help them solve issues related to their websites.
Over time, we received a large number of requests and queries about WordPress migrations. We tried solving these problems at first with other migration plugins, but we realized that most of them needed tons of manual work as well as constant monitoring. We basically needed something like Iron Man’s Jarvis to help us out.
The result? Well we did what engineers do (i.e. we basically built Jarvis…but for migrations).
Our ‘Jarvis’ was an in-house tool to help us automate the migration process. We eventually could bundle it with BlogVault to offer our users better functionality. Having it also let us partner with leading WordPress webhosts (such as WP Engine, Flywheel, Pantheon, and many others) for onboarding their customers.
Our experience got us thinking that if our existing customers and partners had such a great need for migration tools, so would others!
- Most site owners who don’t have the time to do it themselves either hire web developers or turn to their hosts.
However, these aren’t ideal options since they could turn to be expensive affairs (and/)or take time.
- The others who have technical knowledge use WordPress migration plugins, but even these need manual work.
This is why we built Migrate Guru. Migrate Guru is a free-to-use migration plugin that makes WordPress migrations quick, and easy. Moreover, since the plugin performs the migration process on our servers, it’s poses ZERO risk to your live site. This also ensures that the migration process doesn’t time out, no matter the size of your site.
While the Migrate feature will continue to be a part of the BlogVault product, Migrate Guru is our way of giving back to the WordPress community. We’ve used our knowledge gained from migrating over 500,000 sites, and hope that it makes life easier for anyone using it.
Oh, but don’t take our word for it…
Check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think!
