    Our host built our website in 2012 and now wants us to move it from Sitefinity to WordPress. When we had the website built one of the reasons we had them chose them because they didn't use an open source CMS. We have been paying them for hosting and maintenance I was thinking the maintenance fee was for keeping the site CMS updated because we manage our content. I guess not as it looks like we are running on an old version of Sitefinity (3.7).

    I would like to know where to find information to transfer a sitefinity site and about the migration path from 3.7 to current. If someone is willing to be our contractor and take this task on we’d also be open to that.

    Hi,

    You might consider a migration of Sitefinity to our latest version Sitefinity 7.2 and take advantage of all new features and bug fixes.

    http://www.sitefinity.com/product/overview

    Have in mind that we have started version Sitefinity 4.0 from scratch. This let us revise the architecture from scratch and incorporate all lessons we learned while working on Sitefinity 3.X.

    More information about migration could be found in this section from our documentation:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/installation-and-administration-guide/migrating-your-sitefinity-3-7-project

    As a side note: Our Sitefinity Partners could provide further assistance regarding migration of your site.

    That would be nice but the people that we paid to build the site are hosting it. They are saying they will not host it after the end of this month and that we have to let them migrate us to WordPress for a crazy sum of money. They were one of your Partners, just goes to show honesty isn’t a prerequisite. I guess what I’d like is the name of a trustworthy partner that could help us transfer hosts and upgrade to the latest version.

    Hi Chris,

    Would you mind sharing the name of the agency you are working with/providing hosting survives for your website?

    Also, would you be open to moving to a different hosting provider? If so, I can provide some options as well as partner can assist with both hosting and upgrade.

    Hello Chris,

    We are a certified Sitefinity partner and would be happy to discuss options with you to bring your site up to the current version rather than moving to the WordPress platform.  Wordpress, in our experience presents security risks to your company and is no where near as robust or user friendly as Sitefinity.  If you would like to talk further feel free to contact us at info@idmi.net

    Best wishes!

    Holly
