1. You must have a fresh installation of WordPress on our servers.
2. Install the WP Clone Plugin on both installations of WordPress, Source and Destination
3. On the Source website follow the insructions with in the plugin.


WP Clone is the easiest, fastest and most secure way to move or copy a WordPress site to another domain or hosting server. You can also use it to move your site to/from local server hosting, to create copies of your site for development or testing purposes, to backup your site, and to install pre-configured versions of WordPress.

WP Clone is a superior solution to even commercial WordPress cloning plugins for the following reasons:

  • Does not require FTP access to either the source or destination site - just install a new WordPress on the destination site, upload and activate WP Clone plugin, and follow the prompts
  • It does not backup or restore the WordPress system files (just the user content and database) - reducing upload time and improving security of your site
  • It fetches the site backup via your host's direct http connection, which saves you from needing to upload large files through your internet connection
  • It uses the WordPress internal zip archive function, which makes it compatible with virtually 100% of hosts that support WordPress (no special PHP libraries are required)
