0:18 to another poster domain so
0:21 for instance II create website professionally and I usually create them

0:55 all images plugins your SEO settings you know everything like that so
1:00 today I’m actually I do that our any three things
1:03 the first thing really is the duplicator WordPress plugin which is free
1:09 the second thing really need is it the website that you want to copy
1:13 and the third thing we’re gonna need is the domain
1:16 they were going to be transferring the website to you
1:19 so opera stars on the show you
1:23 the website that we’re gonna be copying now as you can see
1:29 it is Happy St Tupper any marketing dotnet so what I was talking about
1:33 with creating website under a sub-domain branding marketing is our
1:38 marketing agency and we will create
1:41 up website for clients under kinda staging server
1:44 which we use up demands for so as you see it that PST
1:48 top remarking that net so this is the website that I want to copy
1:53 as you can see you know we have a a slider at the top in
1:57 you know some content widgets I photos and stuff like that
2:02 we have a couple pages I’m you know there’s a
2:05 a rental your request a quote kinda contact form
2:09 little portfolio page were some
2:12 different images and stuff like that so when I
2:15 transfer this website over to for social doubts to calm I what
2:20 everything this transfer so that’s what we’re gonna be doing so step one
2:25 is going to be to go back to the WordPress dashboard and
2:29 go to your plugins and add new now once the
2:33 plugin area comes out we’re gonna search for
2:37 duplicator to cater I should be the first one that pops up as you can see
2:45 others been
2:46 over million downloads honestly this
2:49 up again is a life saver not only can you
2:52 a copy and transfer website which you can also create up
2:56 are create up backups in databases you know
3:00 which is just you know been a lifesaver for me
3:03 so anyways really go ahead and install this plugin and once we have it installed
3:12 gonna go ahead and activate the plugin okay now let’s go over to the
3:20 left hand side were pressed Ashbourne and stroll down to duplicator
3:25 just go ahead and click on the duplicator plugin
3:28 and then up at the top there’s gonna be packages or create new
3:32 so basically packages are gonna be any existing
3:36 website or I’ll database backups that you have saved
3:40 we don’t have any sore and go and create new and
3:48 the venue is she right here is just a name a file that you’re creating
3:52 its today’s date and then the name your website
3:55 and then I’m in order to create a
3:59 a database is you have to be able to pass requirements
4:03 so if you see here is the list requirements for the most part if you
4:06 have any
4:07 you know a fully functioning I you know we’re press I’m having problems you all
4:12 gonna pass not an issue
4:13 so as to include next
4:16 so what this is gonna do is going to askin all the files on your website
4:20 make sure there’s no issues and make sure that it’s going to be able to
4:23 create
4:24 other files that you need an archive so you can see
4:27 I in less than two seconds it passed
4:30 the Askim so let’s go and clean bill
4:33 to right now it’s our
4:39 is putting together the up archive
4:42 and then also a file called installer to PHP
4:46 and that’s what is specially going to I
4:49 install WordPress on your new website
4:53 so this can take a few minutes on Glenn just possibly do.
4:56 okay as you can see at duplicate it was able to successfully build
5:01 the website archive which was 39.0 two megabytes
5:05 and also gave us the install php file so we’re going to go and do
5:10 is %ah click on the installer to download that
5:13 now metonomy a small file in the morning also click on the archive
5:18 which is the I’m the file with all our website folders and
5:22 and file some we’re gonna go and download archive

5:30 archive you know i’ve seen anywhere from you know this size
5:34 upwards your 300 something megabytes you know if your e-commerce website
5:39 or a website you with a lot of pictures and stuff on it so if your file is quite
5:43 a bit larger don’t worry about it will just take
5:46 you know a little bit longer to download some I’m gonna go ahead
