Move to Self-Hosted WordPress

Menu

Move Subscribers / Stats

With Jetpack now installed, you can make sure your subscribers and stats follow you over to your new site as well.

Subscribers

Moving to a self-hosted WordPress.org site doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to all the followers you’ve built up on your WordPress.com site. With the Jetpack plugin you can migrate your subscribers to the new site with the click of a button. Now that you’ve installed Jetpack, just follow the instructions for the subscription migration tool.

Note: Social Media follower counts are a feature that’s only available on WordPress.com stats. Jetpack-connected self-hosted sites will only show WordPress.com followers and email subscribers.

Stats

With Jetpack you can also keep the stats you’ve built up on your WordPress.com site. While there is not an automated tool for this, you can contact us and we’ll gladly help get it done for you.

Note: WordPress.com and Facebook likes cannot be transferred at this time.
