There are different types from migrations Web. Here we told you why one becomes and which are these ways to do them.
A migration of a website is something to which more of somebody it has had to face up sometimes. And it is that sometimes, for natural reasons, as a change of domain or a growth of the company, make that we must make a migration, to make prosper our business.
Then, does all Web that is successful have to make a migration? Possibly yes, this, so that it can operate suitably and continue growing. And as we already shelp they are several the reasons that can have to realise a migration, as for example:
- A site with CMS: In order to begin it is normal to elaborate a website in some CMS as WordPress or Joomla, but when the volume of our business grows, it requires of a development and functionalities to size.
- The technology must be updated: Whenever our business and ours experiment a growth will be necessary to adapt itself to new technologies. For example, if our Web were not responsive, it will be necessary to do it immediately.
- Problems of hackeo: This she is another one of the reasons to realise a migration, this because the CMS are vulnerable to hackeos, to the being of open code. Also, plugins is done by different developers without assuming no responsibility in their operation.
- Change of domain: You have decided to change the name of domain, or by a change in the name of the business or because it is wanted to internationalize.
What type of migration Web can be done?
One of the first things that you must know is to whom you are going to trust the migration to him of your Web, since she is basically the person who will have in her hands your business. Also it is good that you meet the different types from migrations that exist, among them:
Change of domain
If what is going away to realise is only a change of domain of our Web, it is the simplest modification, since it is possible to be done. What one becomes in this case, is to redirect all the traffic of our old domain to the new one and to try to secure that all the connections that exist to the Web old, are transferred to new, the mainly most excellent ones. This you can see it with Google Search Console.
Change of Web maintaining the domain
Here a little more complicated is made. The process to make the redirections can be complicated, even, having to get to do them by hand. This is going to depend on if the pages of the old Web have their correspondence in the new Web and if the new URL follows some rule from the old man or no, which will cause that we can make multiple redirections with some rule or must be made manually.
Change of Web and domain
If what you try to do is to change to the website and the domain, you must know that it is the change more drastic than you can realise and with the greater risk to lose the positioning. And that you must it solve in the same way that a change of Web. That yes, is fundamental not to terminate the old service until the crossing of all the visibility of the old domain to the new one has finalized correctly.
As you see, for both case, risks exist. The important thing is to make pursuit to this process and to solve the errors committed in the migration and to avoid or to diminish the falls in the positioning.
