How Can I Sell Wordpress Blogs
  • I am really new to site flipping but i have read a lot on this forum. I have a wordpress blog that i will want to sell, but the problem is how can I do this if i have some other wordpress sharing the hosting account with this wordpress blog that i want to sell.

  • I'm not sure what you mean.Are you saying that you have other sites on the same hosting account?

    Yes I have 3 Wordpress blogs on one account
  • What hosting company are you with?
  • Do you have these 3 WordPress Blogs on a single domain name? Or do you have a seperate domain for each blog?

    If you have a single domain name, such as www.wordpress123.com, you can create multiple sub-domains, each with a separate blog. So you could have one blog at http://blog.wordpress123.com, another at http://blog2.wordpress123.com, and another at http://blog3.wordpress123.com. Even though the domain name is the same, each blog is separate and unique, as you would be using a different database for each blog.

    Perhaps you are running the above setup, and are looking to move each blog to a separate domain?

    Once I understand exactly what you are trying to do, I can offer more assistance.
  • You can easily sell a wordpress blog. Once you have done so you will need to transfer the site to the buyer. There are two ways of exporting a wordpress blog. The best way is to create a backup of the database and then to give it to your buyer along with a list of the plugins included.

    If there are paid plugins that you are selling with the site you will need to give them copies of those plugins along with the licence. See my youtube.com video about it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIGsyUfERhA

    I have the blogs on different domains but the 3 blogs are on my unlimited hosting account
  • If that's the case, as justin stated, you just need to copy the files, backup the database, and provide everything to the buyer.

    You can find more details at the following link: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

  • Then you should have no problem with selling. After you have sold the site just zip your sold wordpress site files and it's sql database and send it to the buyer. You should be doing fine. If you have trouble transferring use this link. I found it very simple and useful and i successfully transfered the site using this.
