    How to transfer managed wordpress hosting to another Godaddy account

    I bought a domain + managed wordpress hosting a year back. Now I want to transfer both to another Godaddy account. I followed Godaddy guides and transferred the domain name easily to the other account. But I can't figure out how to transfer the managed wordpress hosting. Please let me know the easiest way to do that if anyone knows.

    Hi @kasun32,

     

    If you already have the domain and the new hosting account ready, you can do a WP "migration" using the Managed WP Panel.  I highly recommend you make a backup of your site using something like UpDraftPlus (http://www.updraftplus.com -- they are a GoDaddy approved plugin provider) in case  you have migration problems. Updraft has worked for me on a couple of occasions when the GoDaddy migration failed for some reason. 

     

    Here is a link that was previously posted on this topic as well.  It boils down to you can't move a hosting plan the same way you can move a domain name into the account.

    Hope this helps,
