Super Easy Way to Migrate a Website from BlueHost to SiteGround using Migrator Plugin


I do not recommend. I had a very bad experience with #bluehost. Very nice environment and nice support, but if you have a bit more traffic or database activity, they will kick you out as they did it with me. Does not matter if you are “green” in all meters they are presenting you in the control panel. I was forced to migrate my website after get the “get out” message and it took me more than a week to put my website back online.


See how to migrate a website using SiteGround’s Site Migrator Plugin.
