SiteGround Migrator

Beschreibung

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!

Screenshots

  • 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

FAQ

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!

Hi Guys, I just wanted to confirm that the SG Migrator Tool does, in fact, leave the original installation on the originating host. I thought I already knew this, then started to migrate a website that I do not yet have access to the domain DNS records. I had a mini-panic attack that the client website would go down until I could point to the new host and wait for propagation. Fortunately for me, the website appears to be still up on the existing host (whew). During my panic, I could not find anything about this in the documentation or forums. I thought I would ask about it here so others can feel re-assured. The other consideration, of course, is that once the testing of the migrated website installation has been tested (the plugin provides the temporary link for this) and you have pointed the dns records to the new host, AFTER IT HAS PROPAGATED - the original installation can be safely removed. I thought this part also worth mentioning. If this is already documented, could you please provide a link to it please. Thank you. Warm Regards, Patrick

Very fast and simple. You Must unlock registar on your domain before pointing to Siteground Nameservers. Then it works smootly.

The Siteground migrator provides very clear instructions. What I was most impressed with are the excellent visual guides that it provides. My migration was stress-free!
