    We pride ourselves on making sure our clients have complete control and ownership of their websites, and never feel like they’re locked into our services.

    We are happy to assist with transferring your website to another service provider but if there’s ever a time that you want to take your website and move it to a different hosting provider yourself, you can follow these instructions to download a copy of your website directly to a file on your computer.
    .

    • From the website dashboard, hover over the tab titled “All-in-One WP Migration” and select “Export” (this is a tool used for exporting/importing websites)
    • Select the green “Export to” button and then select “File”
    • This will create a copy of your website and download it as a file to your computer
    • You can take this copy and upload it to a new website hosting account, or give it to any WordPress website developer and they should know what to do.
    • Alternatively, if you set up an account with a new Website Hosting provider, they almost always offer a migration service where their team will move to their platform for you.
    • As long as you have your login credentials for the website, you have control of it.
