Migrate my Wordpress website to a new hosting service - and some improvements

Looking for an experienced freelancer to move my Wordpress site away from [login to view URL] to a new and faster hosting service. Two that I would consider are Fastcomet and SIteground

My site is

[login to view URL]

It's a fanbased, fan run site for the 1980s cartoon and toyline. Three friends and I run it, and none of us are technical or trained webmasters, we've tried to keep up with new technology and site platforms but we all have full time jobs and we can't stay up to date.

And so the site has fallen into a state of neglect and disrepair.

What we want to do now is move to a better hosting service, with the expectation that we can get things like:

1) Free SSL (rather than paying godaddy an exorbitant amount for this)

2) Faster loading speeds, especially in US / Canada

3) Very good customer service for a non-technical web manager like myself

As part of migrating the site, note the following:

a) Note that we have a forum on xenforo and that needs to come across too

b) Install ManageWP and set it up, include Sucuri

c) Go through all the plug ins, uninstall ones that are not working, not being used, update those that are not up to date

d) Install SLL – preferably “Let’s Encrypt”

e) We have another site to move across also ([login to view URL]) though this is not really an active site, it has no forums, I just want to bring it across for future work on it

f) Setup a sitemap

g) Setup a [login to view URL] that doesn’t crawl our wp-function files and admin areas (WP and Xenforo forums at [login to view URL]

ALSO: As an optional service, if you have an easy way of doing this I would like to put some areas of the [login to view URL] site into an archive, and not have it available on the web anymore. For context, a few years ago we installed wordpress and started migrating webpages from our older site over into it. We never properly finished the migration so parts of the old site are still “published and live on the site”. For example: [login to view URL]

It would be great if you were able to figure out a way to separate the old pages like this one archive them so I can refer to them if needed, but that they won’t slow the site down anymore. If this is going to be a lot of extra work, and will drive your quote up then ignore it. If you are confident you could do it within a reasonable time and it won’t push your quote up too much then include it.
