SiteGround Migrator


SiteGround Migrator: il modo più semplice per spostare il tuo sito su SiteGround

This plugin is designed to automate the transfer of a WordPress instance to a SiteGround hosting account. It can’t be used to transfer a WordPress instance to another hosting provider.

Important: This solution is not suitable for migrating localhost WordPress sites or for Full Multisite installations (separate Multisite blogs are fine).

How to Use

First, you need to get a transfer token from your SiteGround account. You can do this through the WordPress Migrator tool located in the WordPress section of your SiteGround hosting control panel.

Una volta selezionato il nome di dominio che si desidera trasferire, il nostro sistema genera un token di trasferimento. Incolla il token nel plugin SiteGround Migrator sul tuo sito e premi Avvia trasferimento. È tutto!


  • Starting the transfer - paste your Migration Token and select notification email if you want
  • If domains are different, the plugin will inform you about the changes we will make
  • Downloading your site files to the SiteGround server
  • Once data migration is completed, we will set your site on the new server, even change its url if necessary
  • Migration completed! We've generated a temporary URL for you to verify your site on the new server

Does it work with Localhost environments?

Trasferiamo direttamente i contenuti del tuo sito sui server di SiteGround, non possiamo trasferire i contenuti ospitati in locale.

Does it work with

No, the plugin is designed to migrate from stand-alone WordPress installations. If you want to migrate from, please check the Guided Transfer service they offer.

Funziona con multisito?

Due to the complexity of MS sites we don’t migrate full MS networks at this point. However, separate blogs from a MS network can be migrated successfully.

Quali contenuti vengono migrati?

Vengono trasferiti solo i contenuti relativi a WordPress: temi, plugin e upload. Se hai altre applicazioni o contenuti al di fuori di WordPress non verranno migrati.

Does it work only with cPanel hosts?

No, we strive to make our plugin work flawlessly on every hosting environment.

Transfer is completed but I didn’t get a notification?

Il plugin usa la email di amministrazione del sito per segnalare che il trasferimento è completato. Se ci fossero dei problemi relativi alla spedizione dell’email potresti non riceverla.

Si verificano errori durante il trasferimento, cosa devo fare?

Unfortunately, our plugin works on environments that we have no control over. That’s why it can fail or some hosts. In such cases, please contact our support team via a ticket in your Help Desk and we will assist you further!

They perfected this tool... it's amazing. It saves so much time and headache. I used it with several sites, large and small. It's amazing.

Hace poco he cambiado mi hosting a Siteground y el plugin me está resultando de mucha utilidad. He migrado unos 15 sitios y no he tenido ningún problema. Hay que tener cuidado con migrar manualmente todo lo que no sea wordpress (en el caso de que haya carpetas en el servidor a descargas o similar).

It was easy to migrate my website until the time I was ready to put it live. I was so relieved when everything worked without any issues 🙂

Throws out an error on the first use trying to transfer http while its a https domain. This seems to happen often but no solution gets posted and the support is quite on this. This sucks as first impression. I used migrate plugins before without the need to do the following: - disabled any Cloudflare firewall rule - disabled Plesk web application firewall - removed htaccess security tweaks - removed plesk wordpress security tweaks The plugin seems to not being able to create and save the encrypted archive because the folders get created but not the archive. Yeah so pretty fail as the help center on siteground for this topic. You are not able to submit a ticket for any migrate topic. // Edit could reach the chat afterwards and he pointed me into the right direction. Seems to be working now.

We recently migrated our site, which contains three separate instances of WordPress, from our old host provider to SiteGround. Here is my feedback on using the SG Migrator Tool: It got stuck a couple of times without any warning or error messages, at other times it indicated the wrong error messages (complained about file permissions, instead of suggesting all plugins should be disabled before migration...). Worse, when it finally finished, I realised it didn’t pick up all the contents – for example, it missed the NextGen plugin image library, as well as other Avada theme data elements. I ended up creating fresh WordPress instances using SG interfaces (which are excellent), then FTPed the latest backup and restored it via the free UpdraftPlus plugin. Worked perfectly. Much better option than attempting to use SG Migrator, which was a bit of a waste of time. Regardless of this minor disappointment, SG is a great hosting provider and their technical support is excellent!
