Can I transfer my website to another web designer?

Are you unhappy with your current web designer? There could be a number of reasons that you may need to find someone else to manage your website.


Sometimes people want to transfer their website to a different web designer because they're unhappy with their current web designer, need to improve their SEO, or maybe their web designer has ceased trading or is retiring through illness.

In any case, you shouldn't feel like you're unable to transfer your website to a different web designer, although there are cases when this could be difficult...

So... Can my website be transferred to a different web designer?

Targa will be happy to talk to you about transferring your website. Transferring a website to a different web designer is quite a simple process provided that your current web designer is co-operative. Some are, and some aren't!

If you would like us to speak or write to them on your behalf, just ask and we'll be happy to help you out.

Barriers to transferring your website
Bear in mind that some web design services... especially those who offer very cheap websites... do not allow you to actually own your website. So please check your contract or terms and conditions to make sure that you have the rights to take your website elsewhere.

If that isn't either contractually or technically possible, you might need to consider have a new website built, and then point your domain name to the new website when it's ready.

All advice I have provided elsewhere about selecting the right web designer to build your website should apply here too.

To save repetition, please read about selecting the right web designer before you start contacting a few.

A FREE website health check?

You could also take advantage of our free website health check. It is completely without obligation, and that way it will give us the chance to look at your existing website, and provide you with a report on anything which needs fixing or improving.

Whether you come back to Targa or go to another web designer to handle your website, at least you will have been made aware of the health of your current website.
