How can I migrate my website from GoDaddy?

You may already know that in order to start migration with WPX, filling up our Migration form is required (click here for our migration wizard guide). There are different hosting companies out there that provide all kinds of access used to migrate a website. In this article, we’ll provide more information regarding migrations from GoDaddy.

What’s different about GoDaddy Migrations?

In order to migrate a website, granting us access to the previous provider would be the best option, as our migration expert will be able to extract all they need (files/databases/mailboxes) for the process to go as smoothly as possible.

However, GoDaddy would require a temporary authentication log-in code which has to be provided by the account owner, so a specific person from our team of migration experts can log in and perform the migration.

That might turn into a time-consuming hassle if someone else from our migration experts has to continue the process and is unable to log back into GoDaddy’s account.

We aim to perform the migrations as fast and professionally as possible and running into additional communication which can delay the process is not ideal for both sides.

This is why we would much rather have a full backup (files and database) provided upon filling up our Migration form. This way we’ll avoid exchanging emails which may consume a couple of hours (or even a day sometimes) and start working on the process almost immediately (depending on the migration queue).

There are other options that would also do the job such as providing us with:

  • SSH access to the site.
  • FTP/SFTP and phpMyAdmin access.
  • Performing the migration using a WordPress plugin (if none of the above is an available option).

If you have any other questions on the topic, don’t hesitate to contact the WPX Support Team via live chat (use the bottom right-hand widget) and they will respond and help within 30 seconds or less.
