FAQs

How do I qualify for a free WordPress migration?

The free WordPress migration is available for any WordPress users interested in migrating to Bluehost. We do two checks to see if the migration will work with your website. We run the first quick check right after you’ve created an account and let us know what site you want to migrate. That check just makes sure your domain leads to a WordPress site. The second check happens once you install the plugin. Then we look at things like your site’s WordPress version, website size, database size, use of WordPress multisite, current secure plugins, and PHP version. As long as your website meets the qualification criteria, you will be eligible for a free migration.

What if I do not qualify for a free WordPress migration?

If your website does not fit the criteria for a free migration, you will have the option to utilize our paid migration service, which will go a step beyond the free migration and provide a more customized experience for more unique cases.

How is the migration work?

The Bluehost Site Migrator plugin creates a backup of your WordPress site, and that backup gets securely transferred to your Bluehost account. Once your site has been transferred, you’ll be able to review it on a temporary URL. When everything looks good and we receive your approval, we’ll make final adjustments on our side to complete the migration process. As a final step, you’ll connect your domain to your new site at Bluehost (aka point your domain, or DNS). Only after you’ve pointed your domain name and made sure everything is working will you want to cancel your existing hosting service. That way you can avoid any website interruptions.
