WordPress Migration FAQs
How do I migrate my WordPress website to InMotion Hosting?
Migrating a WordPress website is simple. During the onboarding process, choose the option to migrate an “Existing Website.” Enter your WordPress username and password and the automated migration process takes care of the rest. You can also migrate your site at a later time using the Total Upkeep plugin. If you still need more assistance, our support team can help.
Once the migration process has begun, the tool will automatically create a copy of your WordPress site to your new hosting environment. From here, you can review the site and make any needed changes. Once you are satisfied, simply publish the site into production. Afterward, make sure that you update your domain’s nameservers to point your domain to InMotion Hosting. Once propagated, use the “Update Site URL” to automatically apply your domain to your WordPress site.

Will you transfer my email?
If your email is hosted on the same server as your WordPress website, you will need to migrate your email separately from your WordPress site.
Webmail-based email accounts can be purchased à la carte from InMotion to meet your business needs. This email is hosted on a separate server from your WordPress hosting, making it secure.
