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!

    Inefficient and Excesssive Drain On Your Web Server

    The Duplicator plugin a quite easy plugin to use. However, it seems to me that, with every update, the plugin becomes less and less efficient in terms of it's usage of your web server's resources. Consequently, it frequently falls over and you have to find work arounds, in an attempt to get it to work at all! There are better, more efficient plugins out their (such as WP All-In-One Migration) that do not put such a drain on your web server. If your website is quite small, then Duplicator will likely be fine for your needs. However, as your website grows bigger, this plugin may very well struggle. It certainly is not future-proof. And if your website is already of a significant size, then I'd say to forget Duplicator all together! Whatever the case, I do not - cannot - recommend Duplicator for either migration or backup purposes. Instead, I'd recommend checking out both Updraft and WP All-In-One. In my view, both of these are a much better choice, especially if you want a backup system that is future-proof.

    Perfekt, auch mit wenig Erfahrung

    Nachdem ich das Tool mittlerweile schon öfters eingesetzt habe, kann ich es uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Auch mit geringer Erfahrung, sollte es gut zu handeln sein. Achtet lediglich auf die Beschränkung der Größe an Dateien. Oder diese vorher mit FTP runterladen und später manuell wieder hochladen. Top - 5 Sterne!


    I have moved two sites with it and both went smoothly and quickly
