Transferring a site from a subdomain to an entirely new host (3 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    Not sure exactly where to put this, but hopefully you can make sense of it.

      My dilemma

    I am building a website from scratch using WordPress.

    It is initially being built on an unused domain that I own, which sits as an addon in my bluehost hosting. I need to build it on this domain so that the design can be approved before moving it to the proper domain.

    Once the design has been finalised, I need to move the entire site to a brand new domain, which is on an entirely different hosting account.

    Is this possible? Can anyone offer a description of how to go about it?

    Thanks so much,

    Yes, it's possible. There are plugins that clones existing site to a different location like http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/ (and there are others). Or if you're comfortable doing things manually, you can read up Moving_WordPress.

    I know that Bluehost has a site transfer service as well. They'll migrate the site for you (as long as the domain its moving to is also on Bluehost).
