    We Design Sites

  • I already have a site. Can I transfer it?

    Yes, it is possible to import your blog content from other platforms such as Blogger, LiveJournal, Movable Type, Tumblr, Wix, Typepad, Xanga, and more. You can also import your content from a self‑hosted WordPress site.

  • Can I design my site first, then worry about my domain?

    Yes. You will be able to access your account through a Red Plum domain such as subdomain.redplumwpbuilder.com. Then, when your site it built, you can replace your subdomain with your custom domain. This way, if you already have a site, your visitors can still access your old site until your new site is built.

  • What if I already have a domain?

    If you you already have a domain name from another provider, you can either transfer it to Red Plum or connect (point) it to Red Plum. To manage everything in one place, we’d recommend transferring.

    • Transferring your domain allows us to manage both your domain and website in one place. With transferring, there is usually no down-time for your site.
    • Connecting your domain keeps your domain with your current provider while pointing it to your Red Plum site. With pointing your site, down-time can occur and last between one and 72 hours. This is a globally controlled process in which we unfortunately do not have control.

  • Is Red Plum WP Builder a good fit for me?

    It depends on what you are looking for from your website and for your business.

    Pro: WordPress offers the most for growth and customization and we’ve simplified the process. If you are looking for a powerful, customizable yet simplified website builder, then welcome home.

    Pro: We include an encompassing business package for a great value. You need well-rounded services to run an awesome business, so that’s what we offer.

    Con: While we provide you with ready-to-use templates and turn-key business services, WordPress can seem overwhelming at first. This is because WordPress offers tons of control. However, the solution is: take a bit of time to become acquainted with your options. We offer lots of help with this through videos, guides and forums for free.

    If you are interested in learning or if you are already comfortable with WordPress, then let’s get started.
