Here are our FAQs ABOUT technical aspects of the blog such as domain, hosting, platform, migration, etc …
If the name changes and the domain does not change, there is no problem. If, on the other hand, the domain is changed, in order not to lose the positioning obtained, it will be necessary to set a redirect (redirection) from the pages from the old domain to the pages of the new one.
A domain change is always the last option to choose from, in order not to lose the indexing of already published content. If you want to change the name of your blog you can always keep the same domain and simply change the name, or buy a new domain and redirect from the previous one to the new one.
There are different ways of setting up a redirect. From the control panel of your provider, using a wordpress plugin or modifying the ‘htaccess’ file (the + correct choice). It is a fairly complex job and we recommend relying on a webmaster to avoid problems.
It is possible, this operation is called ‘migration’. Depending on the number of contents on your blog, it can be a more or less simple operation. Our advice, if you are not sure about your computer skills and to avoid running into damage and errors, is to rely on us.

In practice it is unique, that is, once purchased it is our property forever. But the sites on which to find themes / templates are truly infinite, so our advice before proceeding with the purchase and download is to read carefully the site’s regulation and policy.
Domain (and hosting) can be migrated from one maintainer to another. In order to do this, it is necessary to receive, from the provider on which the domain is currently registered, an unlock code that authorizes the domain transfer. Important: the passage of the domain is automatic, the passage of the hosting and all the data it contains is not automatic and must be done manually. As for the cost, the domain must be paid back to the new provider.
Https is the secure and certified variant of http, the protocol used to transfer hypertext pages to the web. Google favors websites with https protocol, also in search rankings, and penalises websites in http.
When https is in place, the connection between the server and the surfer is encrypted through a unique code, and even if a hacker is able to intercept it, it would not be able to do the decryption.
Our advice is to rely on a webmaster.
It may be the cause, because the plugins ‘weigh down’ the structure of the blog (some more than others). For this reason, we recommend that you carefully evaluate the actual need to use that particular plugin and, before downloading and installing it, carefully read the reviews to understand its quality.
Yes, it definitely makes sense if they manage to create valuable content. However, it is not enough to create content in multiple languages but it is necessary to set up a correct site structure for the search engine to know what the language of a page is rather than another.
