Quick Video Demo


Duplicator is the most powerful migrator available. It enables you to:

  • Move, migrate or clone a WordPress site between domains or hosts with zero downtime
  • Pull down a live site to localhost for development
  • Transfer a WordPress site from one host to another
  • Manually backup a WordPress site or parts of a site
  • Duplicate a live site to a staging area or vice versa
  • Bundle up an entire WordPress site for easy reuse or distribution
  • Perform a full WordPress migration without struggling with messy import/export sql scripts

Migrate WordPress and Run WordPress Backups

Duplicator creates a package that bundles all the site’s plugins, themes, content, database and WordPress files into a simple zip file called a package. This package can then be used to easily migrate a WordPress site to any location you wish. Move on the same server, across servers and pretty much any location a WordPress site can be hosted. WordPress is not required for installation since the package contains all site files.

Improve Your Workflow with Pre-Bundled Sites

Duplicator lets you make your own preconfigured sites to eliminate rework. Instead of manually configuring your favorite theme, set of plugins or content over and over, now just configure a single site and bundle it up into a Duplicator package. Once you have the bundled site, you can migrate the WordPress site over and over to different locations to instantly create many preconfigured sites!

    I've already moved several sites with this plugin, it works great, it's very simple!

    Bought many years ago after trying several alternative options (including one with a name starting with the letter 'U' I think). Yes, this plugin might take a bit more technical knowledge than similar ones, but it doesn't take long to learn -- less time than it took me to learn how to use wordpress, it's highly customizable, and it just works. One thing I figured out early on was that I should change the encoding setting from utf8_general... to utf8mb4_unicode... to ensure unicode characters won't get corrupted during the duplication process. Also, I should select "'Do nothing' for the htaccess file" (and keep the original htaccess file in the destination folder). Otherwise, the source htaccess overwrites any existing destination one, which means you might then need to modify the htaccess file according to the destination site's directory password protection settings for example. Once you get used to front-end options (4 pages, 1 for each basic step), you can duplicate a site in under 5 minutes on autopilot (or 2-3 minutes if you're quick). Most of the plugin's settings can be left as is (default or empty) during the duplication process. There was one small issue I started encountering after some time: After successfully duplicating, the destination site's admin dashboard would show a warning that the duplicator installation files were not successfully automatically deleted from its parent directory (which is a security risk). The quick workaround was to click the button to create a new Duplicator package from the destination site's admin page, and it would warn you about the files and give you a link to click to delete them before proceding any further. Luckily, this glitch recently resolved itself somehow, ever since I recently updated several other plugins and deleted a couple of unused ones. Highly recommended.

    Proprio quello che mi serviva, ho duplicato il mio sito in modo facile e senza intoppi, ed è molto bello che si può installare nel nuovo spazio senza avere wordpress installato. Ottimo lavoro.

    This is such a great plugin. It allows for easily moving my website from the local server (Flywheel) to my web server 🙂

    Migrated to xampp on local host (Windows 10). Best let Duplicator create new database with user "root" and no password, then it works well and in no time. Great tool!
