If you wish to migrate your WordPress site yourself, you should read my guide on How to move WordPress site.

    The process of migration is simple but the real issue happen after migration of your hosting, as most of the time your directory structure changes and cache and many other plugin stops working because of change in directory structure. Though with this tutorial I can’t guarantee a 100% perfect hosting migration, but if you are talking help of free hosting migration service, you would be facing less issue.

    Details require for free Website migration:

    In order to initiate the migration request, you would be needing following information:

    • Old Hosting FTP username
    • FTP uname and password
    • Wp-admin info
    • cPanel login URL along with username & password.

    What Hostgator offering is really awesome. I have found that this hosting provider also give you a chance to renew your primary domain name for free. Just visit your CPanel and access Extra offer section.

    Mohit Bluehost is a good webhosting company and specially for WordPress, it’s well optimized. Before you change hosting, I would suggest work on WordPress optimization and it might help you to diagnose if the issue is your hosting or your site.

    I agree with Harsh, Bluehost is actually a good web hosting company. Perhaps you should really check what is the cause of the problem you are facing now…. in any case, you can also request for Bluehost support. I am sure they can help you out.

    Cheers! :)
