How to Transfer a WordPress Domain

There are a few steps you can take to transfer a WordPress domain. First, you’ll want to buy a new domain. You’ll also need to sign up for a new hosting plan. Most web hosting providers have an easy WordPress installation option within their cPanel, but you’ll want to read the WordPress installation guide before you make the switch. File Transfer Protocol will enable you to connect to your new server from your old one. You’ll want to create a new database for your new domain.

Next, you’ll want to check your contact information on your WordPress site. Hopefully, your domain owner’s contact information is accurate. If it’s not, you can change it through the WordPress documentation. You’ll want the person listed as your domain contact to handle the transfer. This person should have an email address that is accessible to you. Once you have a valid email address for this person, they will be able to unlock your domain and request a transfer code.

Moving your WordPress site is similar to changing your address, but you’ll have to spend a little time learning about the process. This process will be slightly time-consuming, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating. With a little extra reading, you’ll be on your way to making the move! Just make sure you back up your site before making the change. You’ll be glad you did in the end. This process is much easier than you think!
