    I've created a website on a domain name which a client wants to trasnfer to another domain name.

    The hosting is with one of his friends who wants to upload the site on there, how would I download my wordpress site and database onto a USB if that is possible?

    Essentially I am migrating the site to another domain

    Thanks in advance.

    A) Use an FTP tool such as FileZilla to download all site files.
    B) Use your host provided MySQL tool (typially phpMyAdmin to export full db.
    C) Transfer files to USB drive (but ensure this drive is virus free first, you would not want to include such there) and also scan again after (less site is hosting malware)
    D) Keep a copy for yourself...never know...
