I have recently become a customer of Dreampress hosting service.
I need to move my current Wordpress site from its current hosting to my newly acquired Dreampress.
Usually what I do is create an empty wordpress installation and migrate the databse through WP Migrate DB.
I then move the files through FTP and set the new site address at the new site’s Wordpress settings.
The thing is I haven’t figured out how to create a clean Wordpress on a temporary Dreamspace domain.
Also, my client uses Google Apps for work, so I would like to take care of pointing the DNS without disrupting their email service.
Any help, much appreciated!
Thanks indeed, Joaquín
We are currently offering a WordPress migration service that will take care of you: for just $99 and in less than 48hrs, we’ll move your site without any downtime! Please note, your current site should be at least version 3.7 of WordPress or higher, must be error and hack free, and must remain live at your current host while we migrate it. This is so we can compare the live site to the migrated site to ensure the migration was successful.
While there is no downtime, we ask that you do not make any changes to your site once we start. This is to avoid leaving any of your changes behind. https://www.dreamhost.com/legal/wordpress-migration-terms/
There are also other free options for transferring your sites. For example you can use a WordPress plugin such as duplicator to transfer your content over. https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/215412197 and we also offer a helpful guide here: https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/215461357

Please be sure to let us know if you have any more questions,
es, just recently dumped them after 6 years of using them. Their support is great, but too much downtime for my site due to over usage of resources by others running on the same system. My site was pretty much down 3 days out of the week for at least an hour a day.
I even ended up shelling out extra for a dedicated Database Server towards the end because they were telling me that I was hitting the limits on my portion of the existing server. Unfortunately I suddenly found that my issues were even worse. Their solution was to upgrade further, and they gave me a week free to find out the level that worked for me. Unfortunately that level was at the $100/month point so I ended up dropping it totally.
The other huge problem was CloudFlare. Like a lot of hosting providers they gave you a free account to it, but it seemed like it caused more problems then it solved.
