YES, it is absolutely free and easy peasy! All we need is your WP admin user name and password to complete the migration. We’ll log in to your WordPress website, download a copy of it, and transfer it to our hosting platform. Then we’ll clean it, optimize it, make sure it is virus-free and then test it. Once we are sure everything in tiptop shape, we’ll let you know. We can usually have your site moved and ready within 4 hours (could be longer if your site is "messy", but no worries, we'll take care of it no matter how long it takes!). You can then test it yourself and once you are 100% satisfied that everything is in order, we’ll take it live and show it off to the world! There won’t be a minute of downtime and we handle everything for you!

In short, Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the phonebooks of the Internet. People access information online through Domain Names, like amazon.com or cnn.com – super easy to remember! Web browsers (Chrome, Safari, etc.) access websites through Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, like 162.229.585.19 – not so easy to remember! Domain Name Servers translate domain names to IP addresses so people can find and load websites more easily. Here’s a more detailed article describing DNS from our partner, Cloudflare. It is probably obvious by now that if there is ever a problem with your DNS, people (most likely your customers) won’t be able to load your website. It is important that you know where your DNS is hosted and how to access your account. If you are with Sunny HQ, you can forget about it, because we handle it for you!

There are many providers that offer bottom dollar hosting. If you are looking for the cheapest web host to run your WordPress sites, prepare to be hacked, run out of bandwidth, and possibly have your site shut off when you max out your allotted amount of monthly traffic. Is that worth saving a few dollars a month? In hosting you get what you pay for, and with Sunny HQ you get a lot. We take the SysAdmin work out of hosting your WordPress sites and allow you to focus on development and content instead of updates and maintenance. It’s an entirely different way to host.
We can handle as many sites as you need! In general, each plan covers one site. However, our SPF 75 and SPF90 plans can sometimes cover more than one site, depending on the complexity of the sites. For example, if you have two sites, one of which is an e-commerce site and the other is a small static site that requires little updating, we can often bundle them in either the SPF 75 or SPF 90 plans. For those of you with several sites, we’ll create a custom plan for your specific needs. Just drop us a line and we’ll make sure you get the right plan and the right price!
