If, on the other hand, you want to switch to some other hosting that does not have a built-in migration function or you want to switch from a site created on the local server to online mode, then you must read the entire guide.
Duplicator is one of the most popular migration plugins among WordPress users due to its versatility and flexibility. In fact, it has been downloaded by over 1 million users! In addition to migrating your WordPress site, Duplicator can also backup your site to prevent data loss.
Duplicator is quite easy to use. It is above all compatible with practically all Hosting on the market. Know that if you have internal links, Duplicator changes them automatically when the domain is changed.
Once this plugin is installed, you can decide right away if you want to migrate your website from a localHost or from another website. The process is quite quick, it also depends on the size of a website.
It took us about 2 minutes to migrate some of our customers’ sites. There are also hundreds of tutorials on YouTube that show you how to duplicate your site via this plugin.
Another really useful function is that of daily backups which can be saved on Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive or many other platforms. All this, however, can be done in the Pro version.

You can migrate the site from one hosting to another
Cloud storage with Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon S3 and FTP / SFTP.
Duplicator updates all site URLs, making it easy to edit domain links.
Backup of a Multisite
Best for: Most novice users, especially for the free version which already offers everything.

This plugin was created by Automatic, the company behind WordPress.com. VaultPress is a premium migration and backup plugin that uses its own server to back up your site.
While their $ 10 per month price might scare you at first, you can only subscribe for one month. This plugin is really useful because it checks if there are Malware on our site.
Making a backup or migration is quite simple, in fact as already mentioned above, they are the same WordPress developers so compatibility is very high.
Automated daily backups
Brute Force attack protection
Ideal for: businesses, due to its high price. Or if you create websites for your clients, it might be a good choice.
Price : $ 10 a month, in my opinion it’s worth it for a company that changes its site every day, in fact keeping backups on their servers allows you to reset everything more easily even if the site is hacked.
BlogVault is the fastest and most reliable migration plugin on the market. It has been around for nearly a decade, has performed over a million successful WordPress migrations to date.
Unlike other migration plugins, it also has the function of checking for Malware, but it doesn’t stop there, it also deletes the viruses that are inside your site.
This feature alone is enough to justify the price. Furthermore, it is suitable for beginners because it comes with a step by step guide where it helps the user to migrate the site.
It is really useful especially for very large sites, in fact it guarantees 0 uptime. Which is a great thing for huge sites. The flaw I found, however, is that it does not allow you to migrate from a localHost, hopefully for now. Although I am not surprised, the plugin is solved for migrating medium to large sites and not in the process of being created.
It is equipped with many functions and it would take me hours to illustrate them all, think that the backups in the pro version keeps for 365 days. For some it may be useless, but for some sites it is essential.
Backup storage for 90 days
Automatic URL re-enrollment
BlogVault is compatible with over 10,000 hosting services
It supports large websites
It supports WooCommerce and Multisite
Automatic URL rewriting
Ideal for: everyone! No really for this price and for the features it has it is really the best for everyone.
