    Hi, apologies if this is the wrong forum first of all. I am in the process of moving a couple of websites from one host to another. I would like advice on how to do this painlessly and easily. I am aware that I can use the export/import function but does this export the images as well? I will also be resetting the DNS servers so I guess once I have done that and they are set I would not have access to the old sites hence the reason for my seeking advice. Thanks in advance Jason

    If you're domain name and URL are same, exporting and importing content can works for you.

    When we import, there is option to import attachment also. Some time I get error on this function. But you can try.

    Else copy paste your old upload folder in to new website with export and import may can solve your problem.

    Can you try this methods on a single website by keep it live?
