These guidelines show you how to move your self-hosted WordPress blog to a new domains. To move your WordPress.com blog to a self-hosted install, use this manual instead. Relocating your self-hosted WordPress.org blog to another site does not have to be a complex or particularly time-consuming job, but there are some important points to consider before you begin.
The most important thing is that the transition to a new domains has a significant impact on your position in the searching engine as it takes a long period of your life to adapt to the changes. Here we take a look at the step-by-step instructions needed to move your WordPress blog to a new domains while maintaining the integrity of your site's content.
Because you don't want to take undue risk during the move, it's important that you take a few additional actions to secure your WordPress base because it contains all your contents plus postings and commentary. One of the simplest and quickest ways to back up your databases is to use a free plug-in like WP-DB-Backup, which we will use for this example.
Browse to "Plugins > New Add " and look for "WP-DB-Backup". Browse to Tools > Backup and choose the ' ' menu item before you click Backup Now'. You can also use this utility as a prospective backup benchmark to plan automated backup and downloading it to your computer, emailing it to you, or storing it on a distant host such as your web host FTP servers.
Suppose you have already created your new WordPress domains, you can now start exporting your contents and importing them to your new website. WordPress offers an integrated exporting function to make things easy. Browse to Tools > Tools > Exports and choose All contents before you click Download File.
Browse to the admin'' dashboard of your new WordPress page and go to Tools > Tools > Importer. Choose the "WordPress" item at the bottom of the page and load the exported document you just download. Just click "Upload and Import/Reload File" and your contents will appear on your new website. Now all your contributions and pages should appear on your new WordPress page.
You will also need to move any extra contents such as pictures and other upgrades, and you will need to re-download and re-configure all plug-ins and designs. One of the simplest and most convenient ways to upload all your WordPress files to your new website is to use an FTP program like FileZilla.
Login to the FTP site of your old WordPress site and browse to "wp-content/uploads". Please copy the whole file into the appropriate location of your new WordPress site and overwrite all your WordPress documents when called. Or, you can consolidate the directories without overriding any files if you want to keep past upgrades on your new website.
Even though all your contents and upgrades are now available on the new website, each adjustment must be made again. When you have changed a design in your source file, it is probably best to copy the file from the FTP site on your old website by hand.
Your topics are listed in the folder "wordpress\wp-content\themes". It is the simplest way to open both your old and new WordPress pages side by side and go through the individual options individually. Now your new WordPress page should look similar to your old one, although there are a few other important things to consider.
It may be necessary to refresh all your new website's built-in hyperlinks to point to the new domains, and you can use a plug-in such as Pretty Link to help automatize this work. You will also need to refresh all RSS updates and create a 301 redirection so that individuals and even your browser spiders are directed to your new domains as well.
