Why Migrate from Django to WordPress
The most important question is, why is migrating your website from Django to WordPress a good idea? The answer is simple – Django might not be the best for you.
Difficult to Maintain
WordPress CMS is a one-time install that updates and maintains itself whereas Django’s Python-based CMS needs manual updates and maintenance regularly.
The WordPress community ensures that advanced plugins and extensions are available for integration; Django offers a comparatively outdated feature set.
Django forces you to follow set patterns, which takes a toll on customization, while WordPress helps you choose your own architecture, design patterns and more.
Django’s Python based framework can impact website speed, while WordPress’ PHP based CMS ensures enhanced optimization.

WordPress is the right choice for all kinds of websites irrespective of size. That is not the case with Django, as its ORM system lacks certain features.

Take a good hard look at your Django website. If you think you aren’t able to scale your website as effectively as your competitors and its performance doesn’t meet functional benchmarks like speed etc., it’s time to migrate your Django CMS to WordPress.
This depends on the size of the website, the amount of data, and the functional complexities of your current website. The more complex the site and the amount of data to be transferred, the more time it will take to migrate your website, and vice versa.
If you are satisfied with your current provider’s services and they can host WordPress websites (which most do), you can stay with your current provider. If you have problems with speed or other services from your current provider, we suggest switching to a new provider.
This is depending on your current website. To get a better understanding, we will conduct a thorough evaluation and audit of your Django website to gather all the required information for a successful website migration.
