Website Migration

We make website migrations easy through a collaborative process, clear timelines, and effective communication.

Guiding Your Website Migration with Assurance

You're in safe hands every step of the way.

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the platform your website runs on and the structure of the site can significantly impact its performance, scalability, and user experience. Re-platforming your site to a new platform or migrating to a new structure can be a crucial strategic move for businesses seeking to leverage more advanced features, improve site functionality, or align with changing digital strategies. At Inclind, we specialize in making these transitions smooth, secure, and beneficial for your long-term digital success.

What Is A Website Migration?

Moving sites, not stories: your content's new beginning.

A website migration is the process of making substantial changes to a site's structure, tech stack, design, content, or content location. Small site changes (changing font colors, adding a few new paragraphs to a page, changing one URL, etc.) aren't considered migrations. The term migration implies major large-scale changes. These changes can have immense impacts on your site's performance and as a result, are best left to professionals to perform.

Benefits Of Site Migrations

There are many benefits that organizations stand to gain from performing a site migration. Common benefits our clients experience from site migrations include:

Types Of Website Migrations

Why moving your site with Inclind is the beginning of something great.

A website migration is a very broad term that encompasses many different specific types of migrations. There are seven different types of migrations a website could undergo. Inclind can assist with any of the different types of migrations below.

Website Re-Platforming

CMS or re-platforming migrations are the types of migrations you likely think of when you hear the term website migration. Re-platforming entails moving a site from one content management system to another, or upgrading the version of an existing content management system. Our experienced developers have streamlined our re-platforming migration process over the years to make re-platform migrations as seamless as possible.


Many sites commonly utilize subdomains to host different types of content. Enterprise organizations will often host their blogs or software apps on subdomains. However, having your content on one domain is often better for SEO and site visibility. Inclind can help you migrate content from a subdomain to your main domain or vice versa. We can also provide expert advice on whether or not a subdomain migration would be beneficial for your business.


A domain migration is performed when you want to move your site from one domain to another. Domain migrations are commonly performed for company re-brands when a company changes its domain name to match its new brand name. Our team can help perform domain migrations so that you're able to successfully migrate without any loss in site visibility or traffic.


Website redesigns often aren't thought of as website migrations, but they technically are. Major code and structural changes tend to occur with site redesigns, which meets the criteria to qualify redesigns as a migration. Inclind offers award-winning design help through our website redesign services. We can give your site both a visual and a performance boost.


Protocol migrations are relatively easy to do, but still important to perform. If your site is using the http protocol, it should be migrated to https to improve security and safety for site visitors. Inclind can help you migrate protocols from http to https through our website support and maintenance services.


Modifying the structure of your website often involves modifying the URL paths where content is located. When you change URL structures the content has to be migrated. When you work with Inclind for our site audit services, we can advise on whether or not any structural changes should be made to your site.

Top-Level Domain

Migrating your top-level domain involves switching your site URL from one top-level domain (.net, .com, .org, .us, etc.) to another. There's a common misconception that top-level domains affect SEO. Google has confirmed that top-level domains aren't used as a ranking factor and have no bearing on rankings. You shouldn't migrate top-level domains in the hope of increased organic traffic, but there may be other valid reasons for migrating top-level domains. Our team can help you determine if migrating top-level domains may be beneficial for your site.

How Website Migrations Affect SEO

Ensuring your message makes the move beautifully.

One of the largest risks of performing a site migration is a drop in search visibility. If a migration is performed properly, you'll see little to no impact on your search visibility (it's always possible you may even see an increase in visibility in some cases). However, if a migration is not executed properly, you could see a decline in search traffic that could take months to recover from.

Our web developers collaborate with our SEO experts for migration projects to ensure the migration does not negatively impact your site's SEO. We map out all URLs and place the proper redirects for any URLs that will be changing. Any content or design changes are also reviewed against our SEO best practices to make sure search engines can still properly analyze and understand your content.
