Migrate site from one domain to another domain
Hi everyone, If you are a web developer or a newbie developer, then it is always good to build the website in the demo sites or locally on your PC, and after that, you can migrate the fully build a website to the client’s domain name for FREE. And in this blog, I will show you how to transfer (migrate) the complete site from one domain to another domain in WordPress for free.
For demonstration/example, I have built a client’s website in my domain https://gwwdemosites/d12 after that migrate it to the client’s domain https://gwwdemosites. so before starting you must install the awesome plugin all-in-one migration. It will help you to migrate an entire site. It is also used for taking the backup and restoration of the website. You can see more about it in my previous blogs and how to take the backup and restore the WordPress site. you can get the installation of the “all in one migration plugin” as well.
After the installation click on the plugin that will appear on the left sidebar of your WordPress dashboard and click on it and you will be redirected to the export site page and just hover on the export to button you will find several options. Just select the first one i.e., FILE it will help you to download the entire site database, files, images and click on it to take backup for the demonstration. I am taking a backup of https://gwwdemosites/d12 the entire data will be stored on your PC.
now you need to click on the all-in-migration plugin then click on “import” and you will be redirected to the import site page in which hover your mouse on the IMPORT SITE and click on “File” and upload the recent backup file then click on “open” then the import process will start. It will take some time based on the size of the files and click proceed and hit finish to complete the task. you can also check for any of the Images, Pages, and any other missing files. As you can see in the image below the site above URL has changed from https://gwwdemosites/d12 to https://gwwdemosites so like this you can migrate any site for free.
I hope you found the blog helpful and please don’t forget to check out our other blogs. Thank you.
