How To Transfer Your Website To Another Hosting Provider [2020]

#Ipage offers the worst service and tech support – I can’t begin to tell you of my frustration with #Ipage. First off, they measure their wait time for tech support in DAYS not minutes. You will wait forever. I assume they have only one tech support person for the entire planet! Setting up email accounts was a nightmare! In short, I was burned! If something looks too good to be true, it probably is and that’s very true in the case of #Ipage. Would not recommend it to anyone. Thomas, Montreal, QC

In this tutorial I’ll go over 2 methods of how to transfer your website from one hosting company to another. The transfer process is really simple!
► Hostinger 90% OFF ➜
► HostPapa 64% OFF ➜
In this tutorial you’ll learn how to transfer your website from one host to another completely free of charge. This can be done on absolutely any web hosting providers and you don’t have to pay their technicians or contact them at all. By learning how to transfer your website from one host to another you’ll never have to pay for a website migration service ever again.

Intro – 00:00
WordPress Website Transfer (Max 500MB size) – 0:20
Updating Name Servers – 3:20
Manual Website Migration (Unlimited Size) – 4:35
Using a WordPress Plugin (MAX Website size – 500MB)

► Plugin to Increase Transfer Size ➜

In other to transfer your website to another host you’ll need to take these steps.

1. Open the WordPress dashboard of your old web hosting provider and install and activate a plugin called “All In 1 WP Migration”.
2. Click on “All In 1 WP Migration” button and select the “Export” option from the menu.
3. Choose to export your website as “File” and save the zip file somewhere on your computer. These are all of your website files for a successful website migration.

4. Now, to transfer your website you’ll need to install a clean WordPress version on the web hosting providers account you want to transfer your website to.
5. After WordPress is installed go into the control dashboard and install the All In 1 WP Migration plugin again.
6. This time from the menu choose “Import”, if your website is larger than 64Mb you’ll need to install the plugin extension I’ve linked above.
7. Upload the File you’ve downloaded earlier. And the plugin will transfer your website to another hosting provider automatically.
8. Now you’ll need to update your Permalink Structure. Click “Update Permalink Structure” and choose “Post Name” then click save. Your website should be transferred at this point!
Manually Migrate Website (ANY SIZE)

1. Inside your OLD web hosting provider, navigate to the File Manager and compress all of the files there into a zip file. Then download the Zip file onto your computer.
2.Inside your OLD web hosting provider, navigate tothe PHPMyAdmin area and export all of the database files as an SQL file. Download the file onto your computer.
3. Inside your NEW Web hosting provider and install a fresh WordPress version.
4. Inside your NEW web hosting provider access the PHPMyAdmin area and remove all of the existing files. Replace them with the SQL file you’ve downloaded earlier.
5. Inside your NEW web hosting provider access the FIle Manager and delete all of the files there. Replace them by unpacking the zip file you’ve downloaded earlier.
6.Update the WP-Config files with the new prefix to merge the database and files of your new site.
So these are the 2 methods of how to transfer your website to another host. While the first method of website migration is easier, it’s limited to maximum size of 500mb for your website. If you have a larger website than 500mb you’ll have to use method 2 to successfully transfer your website.

    I got A2 Hosting and I have to say it is nice so far. The speed is great. I just wish they had a little better support lol. They transferred my website but they did not transfer a single sub-domain which was our matomo installation..
