We have developed a high-end version of the HTML-to-WordPress conversion to help you recreate the original backend. Pricing starts at around $250. The main difference with our default HTML-to-WordPress conversion of $45 is:
This works both for websites that are currently still online, and for websites that are recovered from the Wayback Machine.
The High-End WordPress Conversion has all the features, from our default WP conversion but almost none of the limitations.
In all aspects, this conversion is just as user-friendly as any other WordPress site. It is possible to change the theme, and to use all third-party plugins such as drag-and-drop pagebuilders. Visitors can also leave new comments on your blog posts.
