    Hey Ann Rea,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    So you are wanting to move your current side, course.makingartmakingmoney.com to your new host and also change the domain to entrepreneurialartists.org? Is that right?

    You could just change the domain on your current site and keep the same hosting, but if you're wanting to move over to your new hosting then you will need to migrate your site to the new server, often your web host will be happy to help with this

    This page in the codex describes the steps needed to move your WordPress site if you do need to do it yourself: https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    A very helpful tool for migrating your website is this one: https://github.com/wp-sync-db/wp-sync-db

    and this one if you need to bring the media files too: https://github.com/wp-sync-db/wp-sync-db-media-files

    You just need to create a plain WP install on your new server then install that plugin on both sites and follow the directions there are some walkthroughs on the plugin download page I linked above.

    Hope this helps Ann! Let us know if you have further questions.

    Cheers,
    Tyler

    Hello Ann,

    The easiest way of moving one site to another is the plugin called Snapshot Pro. I used it all the time to move a testing site to their main domain. It copies everything from themes, plugins, and even the pages, postings and your entire gallery.

    All you do is take your site you want to copy and compress it with Snapshot. Upload it onto web directory that you can copy off of. Install a fresh copy of Wordpress onto your domain. Then use Snapshot to decompress it onto the domain of your choice. Voila! It takes me less than 5 minutes to do all this.

    Good luck and I hope you try it. If you need help don't hesitate to bug me.
