How do I clone my WordPress site to another domain?

If you need to clone your site to another domain but aren’t sure how to do so, we’ve got you covered with the following steps!

 

STEP ONE

  • Open your web browser and go to the Host Pond website at https://www.hostpond.com/ 
  • Once there, click on the “Account Login” tab.

 

 

STEP TWO

  • Log in using the email address with which you’d signed up for Host Pond services–this is the same email address at which you receive your monthly Host Pond invoices.
  • If you do not recall your billing system password, you can use the “Request a Password Reset” link at the bottom of the page.

 

 

STEP THREE

  • Click on “Services” from the main navigation menu, then select “My Services.”
  • Click on the “Active” button next to the hosting package you’d like to access.

 

 

STEP FOUR

  • Click the “Login to cPanel” link.

 

 

STEP FIVE

  • Scroll down until you find the “Software/Services” section and then click on the “Installatron” icon.

 

 

STEP SIX

  • NOTE: If you have already previously installed WordPress to a domain, you will likely see another screen that is a list of any of your installations–you will want to click on the “Applications Browser” tab near the top of that screen.
  • Scroll down to the Content Management section and click on the “WordPress” icon.

 

 

STEP SEVEN

  • Select the checkmark box next to the domain you’d like to clone and then click the “Clone” button.

 

 

STEP EIGHT

  • Scroll down to the “Domain” section and select from the drop-down list the domain onto which you’d like to clone that site.
  • Click the “Clone” button.

 

After it copies all those files, you’re done!
