Hello Alon,

Thanks for the question about transferring your WordPress site from another host.  We hope you and your family are safe and well.

Transferring a WordPress site is much easier than it used to be thanks to many plugins that allow you to make a complete backup and then restore it in a different location.  The main backup tool that we recommend for our WordPress users is Total Upkeep. This is a WordPress plugin that you can install on your WordPress site, then download the backup files.  You can even make partial backups or  schedule backups to an online storage solution (using the premium version).  You can find the plugin in the WordPress Plugins site (search for Total Upkeep)

I hope that helps!  If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest Regards,

Arnel C.
