HTML to WordPress Migration. Why and How

Read in 1 minute

Using HTML frames can be a very useful way of organizing a website layout, especially when a website contains a lot of reference material. While there are many advantages of HTML using, we can point out some significant disadvantages as well. Firstly, frames are not SEO- and URL-friendly, that means most search engines are unable to index HTML-based projects among others. HTML is not centralized – all pages must be edited individually. The design process is not so versatile as with most CMS – you won’t be able to make your web pages dynamic and interactive.

It’s always more beneficial to convert your static HTML site to WordPress because once your site has been converted to WordPress, you can easily expand it using plugins, widgets and whatnot. One of the platform positive features is its easy theming capabilities that allow changing the website design quickly. The functionality of your WordPress site can be easily extended, and that makes WordPress an optimal solution for those who have no programming skills. There are thousands of plugins available so that you can add all kinds of options to your site. Documents and articles are well structured, and easily updated any time you want, that makes WordPress SEO friendly. The platform has a thriving, engaged community of designers, developers and enthusiasts in case you get stuck.
