FAQs

Why shouldn't I just use automated migration tools?

Yes, there are automatic "AI" based website migration tools out there, but if you have an eCommerce shop with more than a dozen of products, or a clinic in a competitive landscape, these solutions are not for you. Thoroughly planned careful migration is the only way to move your website to a new CMS without compromising functionality and SEO.
