How to Transfer Domain to WordPress

If you already own a WordPress site, then you can transfer your domain to the new site easily. WordPress can only support certain domain endings, such,.net,.org, You can still use non-supported domains, though. Instead, you should use domain mapping to link the non-supported domain to your site. Alternatively, you can also purchase a new domain and transfer it to WordPress.

The process to transfer domain to WordPress is fairly simple, and you will receive an email with the transfer code. After you’ve done so, you’ll need to wait between five to seven days for the process to complete. Afterward, you’ll receive a confirmation email with details on how to continue. If, for any reason, you’re unsure about the process, you can contact WordPress Customer Support Team for assistance. You can also use a third-party service to transfer your domain to WordPress, but it may be a hassle and you’ll end up locked out of it.

Once you’ve installed WordPress on your new domain, you can move the content and data from your existing site to your new site. If your existing domain contains a database, you can use it to import the contents of that database to the new domain. If not, you should create a new database. Make sure you note the database credentials. After transferring the site, you’ll need to connect to the new domain with an FTP client. Make sure the root directory is empty before uploading the installer and archive files.
