How our plugin works

We pride our WordPress migration plugin on being a real 1-Click WordPress duplicator / migrator plugin. That just works!

We’ve worked hard to simplify the WordPress migration process and make it easier than ever to move your WordPress site to new domain or to a new host.

We have two migration methods:
1. Manually enter your SFTP/FTP and database details
2. Enter your cPanel login & choose your domain – Then your database & FTP details are created automatically for you. Making WordPress migrations even easier. Brilliant for the less technical user.

Once you click the “Start Migration” button. We export your WordPress site and then automatically (Yes.. you read that correctly!) migrate your WordPress site with updated links & URLs to your new location.

Transferred a clean install from LocalWP to web host with essentially no issues except that the source site was set to https and the target site ended up being set to http. Changed from http to https in WordPress and all was fine though. Feedback: after selecting the destination domain there really should be a confirmation dialog box; because if one were in a rush and not thinking they could accidentally overwrite the incorrect website. Imagine that! Definitely considering purchasing Premium. Cheers.

This product worked awesome! I had a few glitches but Miles was there every step of the way to help. I would highly recommend for sure. Outstanding customer service for sure.

I’m not going to lie, it didn’t work out for me very well at the beginning and I really needed to use the plugin. I opened a support ticket thinking that it will take them at least 48 hours to respond. I was shocked to get an email from Miles within an hour with a first(not automated) response to my concern. I wanted to sort it all over the phone and share my screen so e hoped on a zoom call. Miles was on quick and didn’t give up till the issue was solved and now I can easily use it. We did a test run and it works like a charm. The big thing that lead me to write this review, which btw is the first time I’m leaving a review for a plugin, is the absolutely amazing support I received from Miles. He responded quickly, he’s very professional and he really wants to help. So refreshing to be helped by someone who actually love what he does!!! Thank you again Miles!!

This didn’t initially work for me so I reached out to support and asked for a refund. Rather than a refund, they asked what didn’t work and took me literally step by step, through a migration process that I never, ever could have made it through. The tool worked, it was simply my very limited technical ability and I was way in over my head. Miles from Transferito hung with me until the very end. I had just about given up on customer support across the board, then a company like this comes along and restores the faith again. USE THIS TOOL and if you hit a snag, just ask for help!!!!!

Think again if you want to use the paid version. $69 is not a small amount. This plugin will not work if you are going to transfer your website to another (new) hosting, and the new cPanel hosting uses the same premiere domain as the one to be moved. I’m really upset and disappointed. Poor support, irresponsible, no guarantee of customer satisfaction, complicated developers, product that is not user friendly. I will never be sincere for my money that you take!
