    Hey Guys,
    SEMrush
    I have a website in wordpress which i need to copy to a new domain. I have wordpress installed on the new domain and have tried to look into ways of copying it over but i am still unsure. What's the quickest/easiest way of doing this?

    the simple easy way is to use the Wordpress tools : Export and Import.. Open your Main Wordpress Websites , Look in your Dashboard => Tools and click on Export

    Then Open your new wordpress website and Import the file... that will take a while and Bingo your posts/pages/categories are up to use..

    Goodluck

    Where is your previous WP site hosted on? Free hosting on "wordpress dot com" or self hosted site?

    Sorry i didnt see this thread earlier, but you could have installed wpbulkeditor, then do an export and import it again on the new site.
    You could do this with multiple sites, unlimited even.

    If both domains are hosted in the same server, just remove your preferred domain and ask your hosting provider to substitute your old domain with new one - if using cpanel server.
