You can use UpdraftPlus or similar plugin to take first backup and restore at another host.

You can use Updraft plus ( or if you donot want to use paid method and also donot want any downtime )

  1. Take a backup of your files from Hostgator cpanel. Upload to A 2 hosting
  2. Take a backup of database from hostgator, create a new database at A2 hosting and import old database there ( For new database, keep details of user you create, password and database name)
  3. Once both files and database is uploaded to a2, go to cpanel of a2 hosting, edit wp-config file and there add new database name, user and password.

Install ssl if you use it at a2.

Simple :slight_smile:
