WP Engine, a SaaS content management platform for websites and applications built on WordPress, has announced WP Engine Automated Migration solution – a new solution that would enable simple and seamless migrations of WordPress websites to WP Engine’s managed WordPress web hosting platform.
WP Engine Automated Migration, available now as a plugin would be an easy to use solution designed to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity involved in website migrations. Once installed, the tool cuts out the most technical steps it typically takes to fully migrate a site to WP Engine. The time it takes to complete a WordPress migration can be as little as 30 minutes, according to WP Engine.
Tyler Johnson, a web developer from Liberty Alliance, is an early adopter of the WP Engine Automated Migration solution, and has tested it as part of an initial roll-out. “I’m truly impressed,” he said. “I installed the plugin on a site for a new client which was not on WP Engine. I entered the SFTP info for the install and clicked ‘Go’ in the plugin. It was as simple as that. In the morning I arrived at my computer to find everything transferred flawlessly to WP Engine.”
Founded in 2010, the WordPress web hosting provider is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and has offices in San Francisco, California, San Antonio, Texas, and London, England.
“At WP Engine, we are constantly innovating and building new tools to make our customers’ lives easier,” said Jason Cohen, founder, WP Engine. “It’s great to hear that developers and marketers are as excited as we are about our new Automated Migration solution. Migrating sites from one platform to another has previously been an expensive and lengthy process, so we’re looking forward to helping more businesses move across to our platform quickly and easily.”
