Introduction: Move Your Website in 10 Minutes!

Today I will show you the simplest and fastest method I've ever seen to move a website. All using a FREE tool combined with a few hidden legal tricks!

I had to learn this the hard way as this week I needed to move a website for my client who is a well-known film maker FAST and EFFECTIVELY to meet a project deadline.

The move was from WA to Go Daddy, the client's hosting service. This was after Go Daddy's in-house migration tool failed, and they had no other solutions to offer me.

It took me many hours of research and several trial and error failures to get to what appears here in this training to be a very simple solution. Believe me, it was not. Particularly to get around the FREE size limitation.

So now what has taken me many hours to figure out, I want to save you days of aggravation by sharing with you my Dear Friends in this Very Simple-Easy-To-Follow Training.


Don't Forget to Backup Your Website

Don't forget to FIRST save a backup of your entire website using a plugin such as WP Clone or do an FTP, and to also do a Tools > Export in your WP Dashboard to back up your Database just in case something goes wrong.

Marion Black has excellent training on how to go about doing this, and I've provided her training here in links below.

Backup Your Website

Backup Your Website with FTP


What You Will Be Doing


To be very clear, you will be moving your website from an Originating Host (your “From” Site”) to a Destination Host (your “To” Site).


First before you begin, here is what you will need to have Ready:

  • Your WP-Admin Login and Password for your “From” site
  • Your WP-Admin Login and Password for your “To” site


This is by far the simplest and least time consuming FREE method of moving a website I've ever seen - and is much simpler and faster than any other plugin I've used or by doing an FTP.

And it's been very effective for me.


Overview: Moving Your Website in 10 Minutes!

This training will be broken down into the following lessons:


Lesson 1: YES This Plugin DOES Work (Images 1-2)

Lesson 2: Export Website to Your Computer (Images 3-8)

Lesson 3: Import Website from Your Computer to New Host (Images 9-11)

Lesson 4: Solving the Size Limit Problem (Images 12-18)

Lesson 5: SUCCESS! (Images 19-28)



Here's some radical yet simple and highly effective training on how to Move Your Website in 10 minutes!

(*Quick Note: "10 minutes" refers to the time it should take you to implement all of the following simple steps to completion once you are completely familiar with the process without considering file loading times; actual loading times for your files will vary depending on the speed of your computer).


Are you ready?


If so, click "Next Page" and Go to Lesson 1.

Hi Kaju !
Thanks for this BIG TIME !

Quick question - During Lesson 3 we exported our website as a file to our computer.
Why then in Lesson 4 do we change the file size of our exporting "All in One WP Migration", after we have already exported the file and saved it ? Why change the exporting plug-in file size at all on our original website (screen on Left ) ??

Would it work if we ONLY adjust the file size within the importing
"All in One WP Migration" plug in, before we import our website into our new host (screen on Right) ?
This way, would I have the option of exporting my website, saving the file and import to my new host at a later time.

When I'm ready to import - change the file size within the plug-in and import.
This would allow me time with my new host to ensure everything is ready for my new WP file.

Would this work ? 🤔
Thanks in advance.

I found out why the all in one wordpress tric doesn't work anymore.
The older version of the All in One WordpressMigration plugin does work with the increase limit size but when u update it stops working.

So download the older version of the plugin and u can stil use the increase size tric. But using the ftp way is way easier and faster.

Does this move the theme as well?
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
YES Ash, the plugin moves the theme, the datatbase, the images, the plugins - in other words as I described in the article the whole "kit and caboodle"!

Thanks for your comment:)

I must have missed something. But don't you have to have an existing account and domain set up on "GoDaddy" for instance to receive the migrating WP files?
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
Sure Glen, and we did., You need an account setup on both ends.

So if I have a website with a domain of xyz dot.com hosted by WA, I cannot migrate this website to Google with the same domain name.

Your example shows two separate WP admin areas. But they cannot both be xyz dot com. So am I wrong to assume one is xyz.siterubix dot com?

I'm with you Glen. You can't buy a domain name that is already taken. I have a domain at GoDaddy that I would like to move over to WA but I'm not sure how to do it using Kaju's method. The trick to me is figuring out the destination without a domain name set up.
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
No Glen, they are NOT the same domain names at all, WA and GoDaddy have different doman names. Just the same content is being transferred.

First of all, my test site from WA s a siterubix test site, when it gets migrated to GoDaddy (or any other host) it has a different .com domain name.
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
Perhaps you are not understanding Brenda. Nor is Glen. We are not using the same domain name at Go Daddy(or any "To" site) as we use in WA. WA is a siterubix.com subdomain, and the destination is a different domain name.

When you move a website (meaning the files) from an originating host to a destination host, the content you are moving is separate of tany domain name.

I've already covered this with a video. It's simply the best and easiest way to move your site. Instructions for removing the file size limit can be found here:

https://ryankozak.com/all-in-one-migration-sizelimit/

You only need to edit the file upload size on your "TO" computer.

Great Luna, Thanks:)
Never read your article or saw your video.
My clear instructions are in here as well.

I have used other backup plugins and was disappointed that they didn't put my site "back the way it was" - there was too much extra messing around that you had to do. With AIO Migration, it's so simple. I even use the substitution feature to move sites from one domain to the other. Easy Peasy!
