I need to transfer a wordpress site from Godaddy to you guys.

What is the easiest way to do this. I have the sites downloaded as well as the databases but unsure what to do at that point.

Hello Jo-elM!

Transferring a WordPress site is not too difficult. You can get the files and the database from Godaddy and upload the files to our server and import the database. After that, you fix the wp-config.php file to your new database credentials to get the WordPress connected on our server. For more information on the details, see the following link.

If you ever need help, we can transfer the files for you. You will need to contact tech support to get the information they require for a website transfer.

Best Regards,
