How to Migrate Sites to New Server?

Migrating your website from one server to another is necessary if you are switching website hosting providers. InstaWP allows you to migrate your WordPress sites to a new hosting provider such as RunCloud, Pressable, Server Avatar, etc.

It involves copying all files and databases related to the website and then updating settings for the WordPress website to work on its new server.

Note: For migrating sites to a new server, you need to connect to a hosting provider first. For more information, please refer to the Connect Hosting document. Further, you can create a new site with a custom domain name on your connected hosting account. For more information, please refer to the Manage Hosting document.

Navigation to Migrate Site to a New Server

From the dashboard, click on the Three dots and select the Migrate V3 option from the dropdown list corresponding to the site that you wish to migrate.

A new window will appear and select the Create new live site tab to create & migrate to your new hosting providers.

After selecting your connected hosting provider, click on the Create & Migrate button. Then, you can see your created site on the hosting page. For more information, you can refer to the Manage Hosting document.

As this will initiate the migration process, allowing you to seamlessly transfer your site from the InstaWP staging area to the live hosting environment.
