From Squarespace to WordPress: the Lazy Man’s Guide

How many times have you thought about website migration? Everything in this world needs constant improvement and a web-project is not an exception. I’m sure that you, as an active gadget user, expect them to become better and smarter with each release.

The same principle can be implemented to your website: the audience expects it to get fresh features and functions. In this case, website migration is the best solution. Here I’m not talking about leaving all the content you’ve been creating for years, but about its moving to a more powerful and functional CMS platform.

It’s not a secret that nowadays WordPress is the most popular and feature-rich CMS platform. Who knows how long it will “chair the CMS market” but the statistics claim so. In the following article, I suggest you a fully automated and totally secure way to migrate content from Squarespace to WordPress, the top CMS on the web. In just a few clicks and a few minutes, all your Squarespace data can be safely transferred to WordPress with no technical skills required.

For this, choose WordPress from the drop-down menu and provide the URL address of the WordPress website. In case, you haven’t created a new WP yet, you can try the migration to the CMCS2CMS test site, which will have the structure of the original WordPress.
