Support » Fixing WordPress » How to transfer website to client including plugins?

  • Hi Forums!
    It’s my first time making a WordPress website for a client and I decided to use and pay for the plugin, Elementor. The site looks really nice and the client is liking it so far, until I realized that I am completely unsure how transferring the website over to the client will work. I am currently using my own domain to create the websites, and once it’s complete I wish to plug it into my clients’ own domain/ hosting. Furthermore, initially I thought I could pay for a few WordPress plugins and use them as tools to make good websites for clients, but now I fear it is not possible to export the websites over without my clients having to pay these monthly fees as well.
    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Hey @bizpop!

    Great question, or rather questions :P!

    So, regarding transferring domains and generally WordPress: https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    In regards to Elementor and any paid plugins, it’s best to reach out to them directly. They’ll have pro/paid support that should be able to help you, since you’re a paying customer. For the most part though, there isn’t anything you have to do specifically with the plugins themselves – they’ll transfer no problem. Only with the paid ones you might want to transfer ownership.

    Hopefully that guides you in the right direction!

    Warm regards!

    To move the site to your client’s host, you should use a migration plugin, so that it will change the domain name for you in all the places it needs changing.

    @mmediagroup yes it is a paid plugin, so I am hoping I can transfer it over without them having to pay. But yes, I will contact them in case. Thanks.

    @joyously great I will use a migration plugin. Do you know if I can transfer paid plugins such as Elementor Pro using the migration plugin, without them needing to pay for it as well?

    @sumitsingh hi there. Can I use this plugin to transfer the website including the paid plugin features? Or will they have to pay once it is transferred?

    Hi,

    Sorry for late reply. You can transfer everything . no need to pay again.

    Thanks
