You can migrate WordPress sites via FTP using our Migration Centre. This will copy-over the site files and database into a package that it creates for you.
To do this:
- Hostname: the FTP hostname, so the server you'd connect to via FTP
- Domain: the domain name of the site you’ll be migrating
- Username: the FTP username you’ll use, it is very often the domain of the site e.g. example.com
- Password: the FTP password you’d use to connect to FTP.
For an average size site, you can expect the migration to take 30 minutes to 1 hour. You’ll receive an email informing you when the migration is complete by default; this can be deactivated in the Migrations Overview.
If you then want to migrate in the emails for the package, you can do this using our Email Migrations tool.
