In this introductory video we talk about why someone would want to transfer over a site from WordPress.com to a self hosted version of WordPress. We also look at the general process involved.
[NOISE] WordPress.com is a great platform for
getting a WordPress site up and running online quickly.
However, it does have some limitations.
Such as the amount of plug ins that you're able to use and
the level of custom feeming that you're able to for your site.
So, what happens, is at some point, a lot of WordPress.com users reach the point
where they need to migrate their site over to the self hosted WordPress.org version.
In this course, we're gonna go into detail on how to do this,
including things that you need to know about before transferring your content.
How to actually transfer the content itself, and then testing that you need to
do at the end to make sure that the entire process went smoothly.
