6: Click on “Export To” and then select “File” option.
7: Now plugin will run. There click the option in the pop-up window to download your site. The file that downloads will end in an extension .wpress.
Note:- Changing this extension name will cause the migration to fail, so leave it as is.
Now you have your old wordpress site backup. It’s time to change your domain nameservers to new host. So you can access new WordPress dashboard and site.
Changing nameservers will take 5 to 20 minutes to update by your domain registrar. So wait until it updated. Once it done correctly, you will be able to access your new host dashboard and site with same domain.

Once you receive confirmation that that your import has been successful. Log out of your dashboard, then log back in.
