I have been getting more web development quote requests recently asking to “convert my website to WordPress”. After reviewing their website builder site or HTML website, it’s almost always a good option to switch to WordPress.
Technology on the Internet changes at an amazing rate. Often people find they have simply outgrown the technology being used on their current website and are looking for something to make managing their website easier. Using WordPress as a content management system can save you a lot of time and website management costs because you can maintain your website’s content easily without the need of a web developer.
Types of WordPress Conversion
Just about any type of website can be converted to WordPress. I can take your existing website design and convert it to a custom WordPress theme, or start over with a new design, just bringing over your website content. Here are some examples of website quote requests for WordPress conversions services I have received.
- Convert my HTML website to WordPress

Websites are software, they need maintained
Keep in mind, websites are software. Code needs to be maintained regularly to address changes in technology, security and performance. Because WordPress is so popular, it’s even more important to keep your WordPress site updated compared to a custom site. Why? The code is open source. Anyone can download and learn it. Even “the bad guys”. Hackers learn how it works, and then exploit the weaknesses. Most DIY users, that do a “5 minute install” through their cPanel by clicking a button have no idea what it means to secure WordPress or that the code needs to be maintained. When people come to me after their website has been hacked, and I tell them this, they tell me they had no idea. So I’m telling you now before you get started. I offer WordPress maintenance plans, and one time updates is you need them. Any new site I build includes all of this in my quotes.
