Move Your Website in 10 Minutes!
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.
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.
