I used this plugin thinking it would be automated, but it requires human intervention from a Bluehost migration specialist. Was told by support that this takes up to 7 days to complete, even for small sites. Plus, if you want the website moved to an add-on domain, you have to email them and hope that they get it. The plugin has you login to your Bluehost account, but doesn't ask which domain you want to put the migrating website.
