  1. I like the steps you have mentioned When i migrated my website to Cloudways WordPress hosting from wordpress.com I done it simply by exporting from there and importing it to Cloudways platform easily.

      1. Everyone has their own opinion 🙂 I don’t find it expensive. Its the best in managed cloud providers. My server is on Digitalocean and their price is best and servers never go down.
