No technical skills needed. No file downloads, size limitations, or premium versions. Easy to use migration plugin that just works.
Hassle free migration
Migrate, copy, or clone your site with 1 Click. Any host, no size limitation, no premium versions.
The Easiest to use migration plugin on the market. No file downloads, uploads, size limitations, or premium versions required. 1 click to export your site and just 1 more click to fully restore it to your new host.
We provide the migration of your plugins files, themes and uploads for free but we charge $3.99 for migration of the database. This helps us with our hosting and development fees. Once paid you will have 7 days of unlimited migrations to the same destination URL when using the same email address. There are no recurring payments and you’ll only pay if database migration is successful. If it fails we offer a 100% money back guarantee.
Selective Exports & Imports
You can backup or restore the full site or only portions of it. From the advanced menu you can chose to exclude DB, Plugins, Uploads or Themes from either backup or restore.
Faster Exports & Imports
Your archive is streamed from server to server and you are not required to have a fast internet connection for migration to be successful. We handle the magic in the background without the need to download or upload any file.
Fast & Secure
We archive and encrypt the data on your server using a password you choose, then stream it securely to our online storage, then back to you. We never get (or want to get) access to your password or your unencrypted files.
No Size limits,Super Fast Site Restore
With 1 click, your export file is streamed down, decrypted on your server, and then used to restore all your data. There are no import size limitations.
Changing domains? No problem
We automatically detect domain changes and update your database and installation accordingly.
Your encrypted data is stored on our Amazon S3 Servers (https://aws.amazon.com/s3/). We do not have access to your raw data and can not recover your passwords for you. After 24hrs the data in our cloud storage is automatically deleted and can not be recovered. (https://aws.amazon.com/legal/service-level-agreements/)
How long does it take for the backup or restore process?
Depending on your site size it could take up to 30 minutes for each to finish. We strongly recommend performing a cleanup before backing up and disabling all other plugins. If you have FTP access look in your wp-content folder and remove any unused files, old backups etc.
What do I do if backup or restore times out?
Try backup up or restoring piece by piece using the advanced menu. If that also fails you need to contact your hosting company and increase the server resources. We’ve had successfully migrations that were over 2GB in size.
Can you skip some files from migration such as uploads or plugins?
Yes, you can use the advanced drop down and select what you want excluded.
Do you offer support for WordPress Multisite?
Not at this time.
How much time do I have to restore the site?
You have 24 hrs from the time the backup was completed. If you miss the time window you would need to initiate the backup again before you can restore. Once paid you will have 7 days of unlimited migrations when using the same email address.
Do you update all URLs in the database with the new domain?
Yes, as of version 1.3 we automatically perform a search and replace in all database tables and update the new URL everywhere including serialized entries.
