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!

<a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/wordpress/how-to-migrate-your-wordpresscom-site-to-inmotion-hosting">Transferring a WordPress site</a> is not too difficult. You can get the files and the database from Godaddy and <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/how-to-upload-files-server">upload the files to our server</a> and <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/databases/creating-importing-and-exporting-mysql-databases">import the database</a>. After that, you <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/wordpress/migrating-wordpress-inmotion-hosting/configuring-wordpress-after-a-migration">fix the wp-config.php file</a> to your new database credentials to get the WordPress connected on our server. For more information on the details, see the following link.
