04:27 Install the plugin on the local site

05:32 Export the Content of Your Local site

06:06 Import the Local Site Content File into your Live Website

Let’s start!

You can get your website LIVE in 2 Parts:

Part 1: Setup a New WordPress Site on a Webhost

To get your website live, you need a hosting account which provides a space for storing your website files on the internet.

To start, you need to go here ➜

And Click Get Started.

You would now need to choose a domain name for your website. The domain name is your website’s address that people can visit to go to your website.

So, you can search your domain name using anything like – mywebsite.com, or .in, or .net, or .org.

Once you get the domain, you can click continue.

Now, you will reach the cart page where you’ll see, that – You’re getting your domain & hosting for Rs. 1,415.28, which will be valid for 1 year.
You can complete the purchase by creating an account and then making the payment.

After you’ve completed the payment, you will get your domain & hosting.

Next, you need to Install WordPress on your hosting account. You can do that by clicking “add site” and then complete the installation by creating a username & password for WordPress (This will be used to login into your LIVE website)

Once the installation is complete, WordPress will then be installed on your domain and this means, your website is LIVE. You can check it, by going to your website address.

When you check it, you’ll see that your live site has the default WordPress content.

So, now you can then go to the final part.

Part 2: Move the Local Site Content to a Live Website

To do that, you need to do 3 things:

– Install a plugin on both of your websites
– Export the content of your local site into a file.
– Bring that file into your Live Website.

1st Step: Install “All in One WP Migration” Plugin on Local Website & Live Website.

2nd Step: Export the content of your local site into a file.

Go to All in One WP Migration and click export to and choose the file. Now, download your website content file.

3rd Step: Import the file into your LIVE Website.

Go to your live site dashboard, then go to “All in One WP Migration” and click Import.

Now, click Import From and choose the file, you’ve downloaded.

Then click Import. It will be done. All your local site content will now be imported to your live website.

To check it, simply reload the page of your live website.

You’ll be able to see that, all your local site content has moved to your live website.

That’s it! This is how you can move your WordPress site from your local computer to a live website.

To login to your live website, you can add “/login” after your website address.

Make sure you enter your Localhost Username and Password. This is because of importing the local site website files.

After logging in, you can start making changes to your website and all the changes will appear on your LIVE website.

This is how easily, you can get your local website – LIVE.

  2. Can i also use this all-in-one-plug-in for sharing my website between two local WordPress-Sites? Great video!

  3. can you please make a video on how to migrate a website from one host to another host (like Namecheap) manually without SQL.

  4. the way you have explained it's just so easy and simple as compared to other videos I have been into. Keep up with the good work 🙂

  5. Really appreciate your help, I would like to ask when we install WordPress on our host do we put the credentials of local WordPress ? Thanks in advance

  6. Thank you for your easy to understand tutorials. I have learned so much from you, and wish I had only found you sooner.

  7. Hi sir,
    Thanks for this amazing video.
    Can i follow the same process for the free domain?
    I can able to export properly but I am not able to download the file in order to import it to new domain…
    Sir any suggestions please.

  8. I have a small question, I'm new to this, I already have a site on my live server and is backed up and I'm guessing moving my new site I created from the local host will overwrite my old site on the server. I can still restore my old site as it is backed up is that right or will it also overwrite my backed up storage too?

  9. Thanks for this tutorial sir…
    Sir, Actually i have a website under profree hosting provider. I want to transfer this to new domain of different hosting provider(Let's say GoDaddy hosting provider).

    Can you please suggest how i can make this possible.

  12. Plz let me know if we can do it using cpanel hosting plan. WordPress plan seems to be expensive. What is the difference between both plans?

  13. max file upload size is 2mb for my site. How to change it? tried to change the wp-config.php file but didn't worked.

  14. Thankyou for the tutorial. In my case, my local sites's content has successfully been transferred to the live site. But, when I am trying to log in to my WordPress using local login details, it is not opening and is only accepting the live site login details. Is that normal? because in the video it emphasized on using local host details. Can somebody please help me clear my doubt?

  15. Awesome tutorial, Shubhang! Thank you so much. I have a small query – towards the end, you have mentioned that we need to use domainname.com/login followed by the localhost username and password. That part is not clear — (1) The usual login for live WP dashboard is domainname.com/wp-admin but you are suggesting something different (2) The live WP dashboard is already there because you just did the import. So why log in again? (3) Why use localhost credentials when you are using live website? Thanks in advance for clarifying these doubts!
