    I have built a WP site on a domain name I have hosted with Bluehost. Is it possible to copy the information from that site and use it on another domain name on another hosting company (the other company supports WP) ?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    James :)

    Do you want to copy everything? Content, theme, comments, etc?

    Yes of course, I have done it.
    If you add 2 domain in 1 hosting. You can direct your domain to your old site.
    if you want to up your site in other hosting. The first you must add your domain to your hosting. Then, back up data from your old site cpanel + Zip your wp theme. The thirst, let up your theme to your new hosting + creat new data+ import data which you have backed up.
    goodluck to you !
    P/s : any one tell me the way to add my signature

    Explore your wp data from mysql database and import to your new host.
