We see it all the time: a client has a website they like but it’s an older development, abandoned by the previous developer, been hacked, or it was built on a limited platform like Wix or Squarespace and you can’t do what you need to.
Don’t worry! If you find yourself in any of these situations, we can help.
Believe it or not, we’ve had a decent number of clients call and tell us that their website is either down or it’s being hosted by someone who will no longer respond to them, and they can’t do anything with their own website.
As crazy as it may sound, it happens all the time.
Sometimes folks hire a freelance developer online via UpWork or Fiverr, and they host the site for you but then disappear over time.
In other cases, we’ve seen clients get left hanging high and dry when a small web development company sells out or closes up shop. In this particular case, we’ve seen some websites blink out of existence when the aforementioned company shut down its servers. In other cases, the website is still live, but there’s no one you can call about it.
What do you do when something like this happens to you? Well, you’re in the right place!
If you have a WordPress website that’s been abandoned by its previous developer, or if it’s completely gone, don’t worry. In many (not all) cases, our team has been able to help clients just like you recover their lost or abandoned websites.
If you have full admin access to WordPress but no contact to call, we can use the admin access to download a copy of your site and migrate it to our B&B Media servers.
If your website is gone, we may be able to rebuild it using the Wayback Machine Internet Archive.
This recovery process is pretty easy, straightforward, and inexpensive for simple sites with few pages. If it’s a more significant site or has e-commerce, it could be more difficult, but not impossible.
Either way, we can certainly give it a try. Contact us today if you need help recovering your website. We’d be happy to help.
Another situation we see is WordPress websites that go years without updates and begin to malfunction, display errors, or go down unexpectedly.
Whether you’ve hosted the site yourself and just forgot to update things, or the company or freelancer you hired let you down, our team can help. Here are some common issues we’ve helped countless clients overcome:
- Outdated PHP on the server
- Outdated themes or plugins causing errors or breaking the website
- Expired SSL certificates
- Incorrect DNS settings
- Outdated code and browser compatibility issues
To get started, all we need is full admin access to your website OR server-level or cPanel access.
From there, we will migrate a copy of your website to our servers so that we have a safe place to start working. Then, we’ll update anything that needs updating. Once the repairs are done, we’ll launch the site on one of our secure B&B Media servers, and you’ll be back in business.
With all of our website hosting plans, we include:
- Monthly theme, plugins, and WordPress core updates
- Free SSL certificate
- Ongoing tech support
- Weekly site-level backups
- Daily server-level backups
All of this will leave you feeling confident that your website will never fall into disrepair again.

Countless businesses and organizations start off needing a simple, easy-to-setup website and turn to solutions like Wix or Squarespace. And while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, we’ve seen a number of clients outgrow the functionality of those platforms.
When this happens, you can find yourself in a bind.
Maybe you love your design, layout, and everything about your website, but you can’t get it to do everything your growing business needs.
My team and I have rebuilt dozens of websites using WordPress. Best of all, since we’d be copying your current website’s design, content, and functionality, costs are typically pretty affordable for most businesses. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel—we just need to rebuild what we see.
We often tell clients that it’s like we’re keeping the car they love—we’re just going to swap out the engine and give it a tuneup.
Once we’ve rebuilt your site on WordPress, the skies are the limit! With its vast library of plugins, we can build just about anything you want.
If you’ve outgrown your old content management system and you’re looking for a change, request a quote. We’ll go page by page and determine how much it will cost to rebuild it.
And don’t worry, it likely won’t cost as you might think.
