Host Europe Group

Learn how we helped Host Europe Group (now part of GoDaddy), a UK-leading web hosting company, migrate their whole blog section. Spoiler alert…the migration was seamless!

Brief:

Host Europe Group (HEG) is a leading web hosting provider in the UK, known for helping both young and established businesses across Europe. HEG came to us with two sites that needed work, 123Reg and Heart Internet. 123Reg’s blog was already powered by WordPress but needed to be made mobile-responsive (among other improvements). Heart Internet’s blog was powered by Drupal and needed to be migrated to WordPress before a newly designed blog was made within WordPress.

Objectives:

HEG needed 123Reg’s blog to be more intuitive and easier for visitors to interact with. As well as this, the blog itself was not mobile-friendly – we knew that this was one of our highest priorities. Once we made the blog mobile-friendly, we then began the process of migrating Heart Internet’s blog from Drupal over to WordPress.

We simultaneously had to manage the new responsive theme too, while ensuring the whole blog section was fit for purpose. It was a bit of a juggling act, as many of these projects are, but we pulled it off without a single hitch.

Results:

The result we’re most proud of is the 72% increase in page load times. We set out to make the blogs easier to use, mobile-friendly, and generally more responsive. So, when we saw this 72% rise it felt like we’d achieved exactly what we set out to achieve. Slow load times are a death knell for responsive websites, so we were over the moon with such a large increase.
