Quick Video Demo


Duplicator 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 used Duplicator Pro for the last 5 years. I had a trouble once and the Duplicator Pro Team resolved my issue in less than a day. There are a lot of updates and you can use on all web hosting companies. When you do your backup. 2 files are created. One installer and one archive. You only need to have a fresh new database with a user with full credential. It takes only couple of minutes, normally 5 minutes to have your website running. Best luck to this team.

    I'm not a coder so was a bit nervous moving a live site database, plugins, files and themes and creating a new WordPress installation with them on another domain. The instructions in Duplicator were straightforward with good screenshots and cautions for critical steps. I did get stymied at one point when instruction said to 'visit' the installation file, and showed an example url on a black background which made me think I was supposed to enter commands in a terminal. My web host tech support clarified that visit meant 'open in a web browser' I did and everything went very smoothly it was exciting to see my cloned site appear intact at the new domain.

    This plugin just saved my butt big time... AGAIN! I ran into issues when the host switched DNS from the old domain to the new one. I had to update the database with the new URL and it completely destroyed my sites layout. Something in the page builder went screwy. To cut a long story short, I was able to deploy the Duplicator backup I made yesterday and it worked like a charm, no issues, no errors, just always WORKS! In about 20 mins I had my site back, working perfectly. Just to put things into perspective, this is a 200k project that I have been working on for over a year and we are launching 2 days from now. I seriously can't thank the developers of this plugin enough. I have used the free version a lot but plan to sell the pro version to all of my clients from now on. You guys are amazing! Thank you!!
