Overview

Duplicator is the most powerful migrator available. It enables you to:

  • Move, migrate or clone a WordPress site between domains or hosts with zero downtime
  • Pull down a live site to localhost for development
  • Transfer a WordPress site from one host to another
  • Manually backup a WordPress site or parts of a site
  • Duplicate a live site to a staging area or vice versa
  • Bundle up an entire WordPress site for easy reuse or distribution
  • Perform a full WordPress migration without struggling with messy import/export sql scripts

Migrate WordPress and Run WordPress Backups

Duplicator creates a package that bundles all the site’s plugins, themes, content, database and WordPress files into a simple zip file called a package. This package can then be used to easily migrate a WordPress site to any location you wish. Move on the same server, across servers and pretty much any location a WordPress site can be hosted. WordPress is not required for installation since the package contains all site files.

Improve Your Workflow with Pre-Bundled Sites

Duplicator lets you make your own preconfigured sites to eliminate rework. Instead of manually configuring your favourite theme, set of plugins or content over and over, now just configure a single site and bundle it up into a Duplicator package. Once you have the bundled site, you can migrate the WordPress site over and over to different locations to instantly create many preconfigured sites!

    I always use Duplicator to migrate and clone my WP sites. It is amazing
    February 22, 2020
    Perfect plugin for moving a website to a new host. The plugin works perfectly EVERY time. I work with small businesses to fix/update their websites which are scattered among various hosts. In an effort to consolidate them under one 'roof' I got a vps reseller account, offer to move their site (free) and match their hosting price. The hosting plan I have will move a site for free but you have to sign up, dig out passwords and then it's unknown how long it will take or even what time of day it will happen. The Duplicator plugin gives me the ability to make the change when it's best for my customer. The only aspect I can't control is the amount of time it takes for the nameserver change to take effect and of course, that has nothing to do with the Duplicator plugin. Once the nameserver updates, simply activate the installer and use the link to remove the Duplicator plugin files automatically! The site is back in business. TIP: make your own notes! I've used this plugin over 3 years and I get a little rusty between duplications. The outline I made with notes (in my own words) along with my own screenshots allows me to walk through the steps quickly no matter how much time has passed. EXCELLENT PLUGIN! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    It is a great plugin if you only want to have backups of your whole website, the downside is you can't import your backups. IMO overall it is a great plugin.

    I had to find an alternative backup/migrate plugin urgently after an old 'Buddy' let me down , ..over and over. Then Duplicator (free) steps up and completes the job in under 10mins , totally impressed with my new best buddy 🙂 No hesitation in buying the Pro , credit where credits due and all that. Top job
