wixtowpIf you are looking to convert your Wix site into WordPress free platform, you’ve come to the right place.

There are 3 steps to take:

2. See if your prized domain name is available. *If you already have a domain, then no problem, type it in, and iPage will move it to your new account from Wix.

3.
 If you discover your domain name is not available, you have one of two choices: A. Pick a similar domain from the list of suggestions. B. See if a different domain name idea is waiting to be grabbed. Completing this step will take you to the “create account” page.

4.
 Provide Your Billing/Account Information

  • Be sure to provide an email address you frequently use
  • I usually do a 12 month plan
  • I typically uncheck the domain privacy extra
  • Go ahead and uncheck all the extras, you don’t need them

Click Check Out (You can add them later at any time)

pluginDownload CMS2CMS – This is a plugin that helps convert one CMS (Content Management Software) to another, or in this case Wix to WordPress.

You can download it from here http://wordpress.org/plugins/cms2cms-wix-to-wp-migrator/

This is it. It should not take you more than 10 minutes to complete.
