How to Close Your WordPress Site on BlueHost

When you decide to close down your WordPress site, there are a few things you will need to take care of. First of all, you will need to move your content over to another platform (such as HubSpot). Then you will have to decide what to do about your data. You have a couple of options here. The first one is to export all your posts and pages to a CSV file. Then, you can either choose to wipe the blog entirely, or you can keep some of the content and import it to a new blog on a different platform (such as HubSpot).

Another option is to use a tool like XRecovery to recover your content. This is particularly useful if you have already started some content and want to keep it. XRecovery allows you to recover or create new content with all the previous posts and pages. So, in other words, you can recover your blog exactly as it was before you decided to close it down.

Move Your Content Over To Another Platform

The first step in closing down your WordPress site is to make sure you have transferred all your content over to another platform. That means moving your blog posts and pages, as well as any content you have stored in the admin area of your WordPress site (such as images and videos).

If you are using WordPress.com, then all you need to do is import your content into a new WordPress site. Simply log in to the WordPress.com dashboard, then click on the import button in the upper right corner.

If you are using your own WordPress install, then you will need to switch hosts. There are a few reasons why you might want to do this. For example, you can use a free GitHub account to store all your content. Then, when you decide to close down your WordPress site, you can either delete your entire blog, or you can export your content and follow the instructions above to import it into a new WordPress site (on GitHub or any other platform).

Decide What To Do About Your Data

The next step in closing down your WordPress site is to decide what you will do about your data. You have two options here. You can:

  • Wipe the blog completely and start from scratch.
  • Keep some content and import it to a different platform (such as HubSpot).

If you choose to wipe the blog, then the data will be gone—not even a trace of it will remain. So your readers will have to start from scratch when they visit your blog again (assuming you are blogging about something new).

On the other hand, if you decide to keep some content and import it to a different platform, then you will need to decide how much of this content you want to keep. The first thing you should do is organize your content into categories or tags. This can be done by moving the content you want to keep into separate posts or pages and then selecting which ones you want to preserve. You could also export your content as a WordPress archive (in CSV format), then use a tool like XRecovery to review and organize your content before you decide what to do about it.

In most cases, it is recommended to export your content as a WordPress archive, then review and organize it using a tool like XRecovery. This is because WordPress stores all your content in a hierarchy of directories. For example, if you have a blog post titled “How to Host a WordPress Site” then this post will be located at the following URL:

http://yoursite.com/blog/how-to-host-a-wordpress-site/

When you export your content as a WordPress archive, all the directories and files inside the WordPress installation are copied over, including the “blog” directory (which contains your content). So, in other words, all the posts and pages you have ever published on your site will be stored in a single place (as well as any content you have stored in the admin area of your WordPress site).

Now that you have all your content stored somewhere else, it’s time to decide what to do about it. Below you will find a short list of suggestions that will help you decide what to do next. However, this list is not exhaustive —it simply seeks to provide some direction to help you make the right decision for your specific case.
