    I am transferring from the host I am using now to Bluehost. I am trying to figure out how to do this. I downloaded filezilla as I was told, but now I am trying to figure out how to save all of my wordpress website data to upload to filezilla. Originally I just selected the import button on my wordpress dashboard, but someone at bluehost told me there is another more secure way to download the files and thats not the best method, but he couldnt give me further info. Can someone help me? Thanks!

    Also, here's the help article that Bluehost made for moving WordPress from one host to another:

    I am wanting to transfer from WIX to wordpress.
    I have my transfer code, where would I put that to start the transfer process?

    AJWiliams: Your post is unrelated to the post you wrote on. Also you should not ask your questions on someone else's post, but start your own new one instead.

    Here is a guide to starting a wordpress site on Bluehost. Since you are transfering to Bluehost you will not use the "Register a New Domain" box. Instead you will click on transfer domain and enter your domain. You will need to point that domain to Bluehost's name servers (NS1.bluehost.com & NS2.bluehost.com)..

    There rest of the guide should help you.
