Thanks for the buggy ride. I tried it on three sites and I can't get it to work on any of them. So much for an easy way to move a site to Bluehost. I love their hosting. This plug in - not so much. Don't waste your time and effort.

This is simply terrible. Tried this plugin with a simple website, with a couple of plain html pages and it simply doesn't work. The biggest surprise to me is how come Bluehost is listed on the recommended hosting services for wordpress. This comment is not only about the plugin. Many small details while dealing with the admin settings on Bluehost page are also non-intuitive or frustrating by the lack of options. This plugin is just a small example of the experience the user will have with Bluehost... Stay away from Bluehost!

This plugin seemed to work great. It did it's thing and made a package of my site somewhere. Then you go to your bluehost server and click migrate site, put in the URL and transfer key... and it gives you an error with the support telephone number. I called the number and the support tech told me "that rarely works for so many reasons".... wow, guess this simple wordpress site will have to be transferred another way. Tried this plugin with 3 different sites, all with the same experience. It just doesn't work at all

Don't bother, it doesn't work. I followed the instructions exactly. Three hours after starting the process, I was still staring at the "Cloning your website" screen, wondering if it would ever finish packaging the uploads and start transferring my website. I can't tell you if it did or not because I have to leave for work. What a waste of time.
