How to Transfer a Website from One Domain to Another

We give you no fluff, just the good stuff. Like a Banana.

This is how you migrate your WordPress site to a different domain name. 

Let’s get started!

  1. Go to Plugins > Add New
  2. Look for “All-in-One WP Migration” Plugin. Install and activate it
  3. On the dashboard, click on the plugin, and export the site as a “File”
  4. Now, go to your new site, install the same plugin we used on the previous site (All-in-one WP Migration)
  5. On the dashboard, find the plugin. And select “Import”
  6. Look for the file we just exported, then, import it. Click on “Proceed.”

And you are all set!

Important: 

  • Save the credentials you used to login to the old domain, to login to the new one. 
  • Swipe the URLs of the old domain to the new one.
    • For example: your-old-domain.com/how-to-migrate -a-site-on- wordpress TO 
    • your-new-domain.com/how-to-migrate -a-site-on- wordpress
