This easy to follow lab will show you how to move your WordPress website onto a new VPS.
We often put things off in life because they seem more trouble than it’s worth. Don’t fall into that trap when it comes to getting the best value and performing hosting for your WordPress website.
In this lab you will learn how to make use of the free Xcloner plugin to make a full copy of your existing site and install it on a new host. We demonstrate using a Linode VPS that’s managed with ServerPilot, the same setup you can create following our Shoestring VPS lab.
Anyone can follow this lab and you only need a web browser.
No need to install new software on your computer that you’ll never use again.
No need to learn how to download and upload files over FTP and SFTP.
In fact, you don’t need to download any files at all. It doesn’t matter if you have a super fast broadband connection or an old dial up modem. This will be just as quick either way because files are transferred directly from your original server to your new VPS.
