Free Migration of WordPress from BlueHost To AWS !
It can be a tedious and time-consuming task to migrate WordPress installations from BlueHost to AWS. Many companies have asked us for help migrating their WordPress installations from BlueHost to AWS.
This gave rise to the idea of creating a solution that would make this migration easy and simple for everyone.
So, we are extremely proud to launch our new initiative, https://www.movetoaws.com which is totally FREE!
This platform was created to facilitate seamless and hassle-free migration of web properties from different sources to Amazon Web Services (Amazon Web Services).
We are thrilled to announce our first offering under this initiative: Migrate WordPress From BlueHost To AWS.
This application will assist you in migrating existing WordPress websites hosted on BlueHost to Amazon Web Services. It takes only a few clicks. This application will require credentials from the source site, i.e. BlueHost will require credentials from the source site, i.e. IP, Username, and Password. This application will also need the Access Key and Secret Access Key from an existing AWS account to validate it.
Let’s take a look at this application.
Below is a snapshot of the Home Page, where you can login with your facebook credentials. Your credentials will not be stored anywhere by this application. Logout from this application and all login information will be deleted. You will need to enter your credentials again the next time.
After successful login, it will ask you for your BlueHost credentials to verify that WordPress is installed on the source site.
If there are multiple WordPress installations on your source site, the application will allow you to choose which WordPress site needs to be migrated to Amazon Web Services.
To migrate your WordPress site from WordPress to Amazon Web Services, you will need to provide the Access Key ID (or Secret Access Key) of your AWS account.
You will need to select AWS Region and Key-Pair in order to build the infrastructure you need.
The application will then prompt you to fill in the following fields.
