SiteGround Migrator

Descripción

SiteGround Migrator: the easiest way to move your site to SiteGround

This plugin is designed to automate the transfer of a WordPress instance to a SiteGround hosting account. It can’t be used to transfer a WordPress instance to another hosting provider.

Important: This solution is not suitable for migrating localhost WordPress sites or for Full Multisite installations (separate Multisite blogs are fine).

How to Use

First, you need to get a transfer token from your SiteGround account. You can do this through the WordPress Migrator tool located in the WordPress section of your SiteGround hosting control panel.

Once you select the domain name that you want to initiate the transfer for, our system will generate a transfer token for you.Paste the token in your SiteGround Migrator plugin and press Initiate Transfer. That’s all!

Capturas

  • Starting the transfer - paste your Migration Token and select notification email if you want
  • If domains are different, the plugin will inform you about the changes we will make
  • Downloading your site files to the SiteGround server
  • Once data migration is completed, we will set your site on the new server, even change its url if necessary
  • Migration completed! We've generated a temporary URL for you to verify your site on the new server

Preguntas frecuentes

Does it work with Localhost environments?

We download your site content directly on the SiteGround server, that’s why we can’t access your content if it’s hosted on a local environment.

Does it work with WordPress.com?

No, the plugin is designed to migrate from stand-alone WordPress installations. If you want to migrate from WordPress.com, please check the Guided Transfer service they offer.

Does it work with Multisite?

Due to the complexity of MS sites we don’t migrate full MS networks at this point. However, separate blogs from a MS network can be migrated successfully.

What content is migrated?

We move only your WordPress content – themes, plugins, uploads. If you have other applications or content outside WordPress it will not be migrated

Does it work only with cPanel hosts?

No, we strive to make our plugin work flawlessly on every hosting environment.

Transfer is completed but I didn’t get a notification?

The plugin uses your current site admin email to notify you that the transfer is completed. If it fails to send emails you may not receive one upon completion.

I am getting transfer errors, now what?

Unfortunately, our plugin works on environments that we have no control over. That’s why it can fail or some hosts. In such cases, please contact our support team via a ticket in your Help Desk and we will assist you further!

After trying numerous migration plugins and solutions, this is far and away the best experience I've ever had migrating a website for free. I know it depends on you using Site Grounds, but they were already my WordPress host of choice anyway as they're a great price and I've never had a single issue with their service. But this plugin functioned truly exceptionally, straight through no problems. The dev site is still functional, no messing around and renaming or changing urls, it just worked.

The migration tool is easy to use. For information, if both sites are hosted by SiteGround, the temporary URL is not really usefull because the new website is already pointing to SiteGround DNS servers. I've checked the the temporary URL and the final one. So far, I've detected 2 issues: - A menu has disappeared : the pointing to WooCommerce customer-logout perhaps, perhaps because it was a bad one - on the temporary site, the slider (created via Slider Revolution) in main page is not visible, but it's well present on the destination website.

I just migrated two websites from Godaddy to Siteground. One was a medium-size site running on 2016 and we also moved a Divi based WooCommerce site that has about 900 unique products. No real problems at all. The smaller site had a slight difference in the domain and Siteground Migrator fixed all the site name changes (www site stripped) so we have a nicer looking URL. Had one hiccup trying to wonder why things weren't operating right till I realized the site was originally set up a www domain. If your having Godaddy problems it's most likely because Godaddy likes to throttle and constrict things like UpdraftPlus, WP-Optimize, JoomUnited, amd Amazon S3backups. We moved because of the throttling. Also, Siteground seems like it is way better set up for WordPress. We are most pleased! 😀

Un plugin davvero utile che permette di trasferire un intero sito in pochi minuti e in maniera davvero semplice. Perfetto!
