    Cloning Website on another domain

    Does anyone know the easiest way I can take one of my websites I built with the Website Builder and clone it and place it on a second domain. Yes, the exact same website.

    Hi @poweroftexting, thanks for posting.

    There is not a way to clone or copy a website from one Website Builder plan to another.

    However, if you just want to change the domain name that the plan uses to put the site on a new domain, you can change the Domain name associated with the Website Builder plan.

    Question for you -- would you recommend this for a situation where I'm moving a client from one hosting facility to GoDaddy?

     

    I'm taking over site management for a client (they were strictly an SEO client previously).  What I'd like to do is completely set up this client in a GD account and then flip the DNS switch so the move would be as seemless as possible. 

    Hello @kurtteej42!

     

    Welcome to the community! To move a website to us, we've constructed guides. You can find them in our Help section. Here's the guide if you're planning to use cPanel hosting.

    How do you change the Domain name associated with the Website Builder plan.

    The inability to clone a website in Webbuilder is a serious flaw-it should not be tolerated.
