Managed WooCommerce Stores Help

How do I migrate my site to Managed WooCommerce Stores during the free trial?

During your free trial for Managed WooCommerce Stores, when it's time to migrate your WordPress website into your account, we can do that for you. It's a high-success, reliable way to get the job done right.

How does your migration work?

Our specialized team handles your WordPress site migrations for you with our premier concierge service. A site migration is included for free across all of our Managed WooCommerce Stores plans, whether or not you have a basic or complex WordPress install.

An engineer reviews the details and keeps you updated on progress. Our team prefers to transfer your WordPress site via SSH as that makes it possible for us to do a final data sync just prior to the cutover — ensuring the Managed WooCommerce Stores site is current with any data that's changed in the interim. During this time, we’ll also scope out any surface-level errors our experts can find, and address them for you before switching DNS over.

What if I want to migrate the site myself?

Since SSH/SFTP access isn't available during the free trial, if you prefer to migrate the site on your own, we recommend using the Clone tool built into ManageWP.

I didn't opt-in to the expert migration during onboarding. Can I still request a migration?

Absolutely. Use the GoDaddy Guides section at the bottom of your Managed WooCommerce Stores Overview to send a message to our dedicated support team. Be sure you select Migration from the list. We'll be in touch shortly and we'll keep you informed by email. Your site will be migrated in about three days.
