InstaWP allows you to migrate your existing WordPress Staging site to the InstaWP Live site - managed WordPress Hosting with CDN, Security (WAF), and Backups in-built.

In this documentation, we will explore the steps to migrate the staging site to InstaWP live.

Let’s get started 🚀

Go to your dashboard and click on the Go Live icon corresponding to the staging site you want to migrate.

Note: If the user doesn't have any pricing plan subscribed to, they need to add a credit or debit card to migrate their staging site to InstaWP live.
