GoDaddy as an automated migration script which you can select when setting up a new managed wordpress site. I have personally had this be successful and also had it fail - depending on the size of the site / plugins / configuration. 

 

If you are just using a cPanel server vs the Managed WordPress platform, than you will have to migrate it on your own - or paying someone to move it for you.

 

I often recommend All-In-One Migration Plugin

Re: Does Godaddy Provide Free WordPress Migration ?

Hey @MohammedMkh. Thanks for posting. As @PL281 mentioned, we have an automatic migration as part of our Managed WordPress plans. However, if you're considering cPanel, you can try using the migration built into Installatron. That is the platform within cPanel for automatic application installs. There is usually an option to import a site when you use that service. This article explains how to do it.
