You have created your website with WordPress and want to export your data? Here you can learn how to export your data.

You can easily move the contents of an existing WordPress site to your Managed WordPress site at IONOS. The process can be divided into three steps:

  • Export the data from your existing WordPress website
  • Prepare your Managed WordPress Website
  • Import your data into your Managed WordPress website with IONOS

There is an import/export process that WordPress offers by default. A detailed description of how to move WordPress content can be found in our IONOS Community.
