If you want to know how to migrate from blogger to WordPress Siteground hosting in 2020 then congratulations, you are at the right place.
There are a lot of articles on this topic but I am here for moving Siteground hosting only. There is one thing which you should keep in your mind is that before migrating from Blogger to WordPress you should take a backup from your Blogger account.
First login to your Blogger account then go to Settings>>Other and click on “Back up content”. Then it will be downloaded into your laptop.
Most of the people have used Blogger in their early times because it is free, easy to use and most of them did not know what actually the hosting is.
Actually, choosing Blogger is the best idea in the beginning of blogging. You will get enough experience, writing content, link building, seo and more.
If you still do not know how to start a blog on WordPress then what are you waiting for?
Blogger is also a good platform but there are not enough customization options in it. Due to the presence of date in the URL, it does not even look attractive and catchy.
On the other side, WordPress provides you more customization options to make your website look beautiful and professional. If you do not want date in URL then you can do this in settings>>permalinks and just click on “post link”.
Migrate From Blogger To WordPress 2020 (Siteground Hosting)
For moving from Blogger to WordPress, you have to purchase any Siteground hosting plan. I have written an article on this topic already by providing link above.
Go to your cpanel by typing my.siteground.com in google search bar. When you do this then you will enter in a cpanel.
Now, click on the website menu as highlighted in image where you will find “new website” option just click on it.
After clicking on new website option, you wil see three options there:
(1): New Domain
(2): Existing Domain
(3): Temporary Domain
What you have to do is click on number two i.e Existing domain as highlighted in image.
Now, you will see another option named as “enter your domain name”. In my case, there is a website lyricsmiz.com you can enter yours site name.
When you will click on “continue” then there will be written like this domain which you have entered is not registered in your Siteground account. It’s DNS servers will be changed in Godaddy or whatever your domain provider is. If not then site would not open. So, you have to click “Continue” again.
Migrate Website from Blogger To WordPress
After clicking on “Continue”, two options will appear:
(a): Start new website.
