How do I upgrade to Magento 2 without changing URLs?

It’s time to upgrade to Magento 2 without changing URLs. 

Migrating is not a simple update of the platform. It has a completely new architecture, but it has nothing to do with URLs. The migration routine should be held on a local server. It’s like an installation from scratch and includes setting up all the extensions as in Magento1. We can go live only after tested everything and can see each URL and change it before we go live. If we have everything set up on your local server, you can roll it up to the live site and the URLs will remain the same

Upgrade to Magento 2.0 without changing URLs

Upgrading Magento to the latest version without changing URLs is a difficult job and has to be taken very care for there may be a chance for any data loss, and so we must approach the experts to do this work. .In any business operating on Magento1, the migration to Magento 2.x should be done because the M1 will be outdated soon.

Proper hosting can now deliver nearly instant server response times for catalog browsing. Magento 2.x can manage 10 million catalog pages views an hour and only 500,000-page views per hour by the Magento 1.9.

  • Improved Interface

The new admin interface has a fluidic and interactive design which is more user-friendly than that of its previous generation.

Better customer experience -Modern online shoppers want to have a short checkout process. Magento 2 has integrated instant purchases feature, which optimizes the checkout. Since the migration to Magento 2 is very complex, it could lead to severe data loss. To keep your product and customer information, together with meta titles, tags, and descriptions, we advise you to make a backup of your current Magento website. For that, we use external hard drives, cloud storage or Zip Drive.  

Theme migration -There is no way to convert the Magento 1 theme to Magento 2. We can set up a Magento 2 theme and customize it as the design of a previous Magento.

Extension Migration-It is not possible to have the Magento 1 module to Magento 2. To add Magento 1 extension to Magento 2 with the same features, you will need help from the experts.

Customization migration-Since, Magento is an open-source platform, with Code Migration Toolkit it is easier for custom code migration.

Data Migration – The final step is to transfer your entire website’s data and adjust it to a new structure of Magento 2. After the data migration, conducting thorough testing of the new online store to ensure that the important types of data were migrated correctly.

The challenges of moving from Magento 1 to Magento 2

 During the migration process, you can run your Magento1 but the loading speed is low

Losing SEO ranking- during the migration, the URL’s, your products, categories, and CMS pages have a chance to change and to avoid these changes,  figuring out existing 404 error pages on the new website and fix them with 301 redirects.
