    Creating a mirror/copy site

    If you have a site say 123.com is there an easy way to copy all the pages from it to a new site say 456.com?

    Thanks

    Re: Creating a mirror/copy site

    Are both the domains on the same hosting account? Is your site setup with a CRM (like WordPress, Joomla, Magneto, etc) or not? It depends on your site setup and whether they are on different hosting accounts or not on what is the best option.

    If it is built with WordPress, the easiest way to clone the site would be to use Godaddy's Pro Site tools to backup then clone the the current to the new site.

    If it isn't a WordPress site, you could download a zip copy of your current websites files via file manager within your cpanel, then upload the file to the new site's file manager in the appropriate spot and unzip the files.

    There are a few other ways you can clone your website to the new spot but it all depends on your hosting and website setup.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey there @busaman,

     

    That kind of depends on what platform your site is built on. If you have WordPress, for example, there is an export option under Tools in the wp-admin. You can export all your pages, posts, etc., with that and then import them into your new site.
