What are these?



Boisdale own and operate live music and fine dining venues across London. They specialise in great music, exquisite food and good times and who can argue with that!?

Boisdale approached us, and several other agencies, looking to move their website hosting and annual support to a new supplier.

We provided a quote for the migration and onboarding of their Craft CMS website - something we're becoming quite the specialists in as more and more clients approach us needing this service - and an annual SLA (Service Level Agreement) to handle the support, maintenance and ongoing development of their website. After reviewing all the tenders submitted we were pleased to be awarded the business.

What we did

What we did

There are a lot of steps involved in migrating a website and over the years we have become experts in handling them smoothly. The process requires us to engage with the incumbent agency, client IT support and our own staff to seamlessly manage all the moving parts and avoid any nasty surprises or unwanted downtime.

We start by gathering copies of the site code, build scripts, documentation, media, configuration and database. We then setup the website within our hosting architecture, creating the development, staging and production environments.

We also request a copy of the DNS settings so that we can setup the DNS and take control of the name servers prior to the migration. On the day of the switchover we request final copies of the code, media, configuration and database which we add to the new environments on which we run final testing. We then update the DNS to seamlessly transition web traffic to the new hosting.

Once complete we monitor and review the new site to ensure everything is stable and then it's business as usual.

If you're considering a similar website migration or a new annual support agreement please get in touch to discuss your options.
