How to transfer your website
First, you will need to purchase a MyWebsite Creator package from IONOS.
Once that's done, log in to your account, select your website builder package and click on Create Website. You can now choose a template.
After clicking on Start with this design, the website builder will launch into view.
Now, select the sub-item Content in the editor. Click on Import Content to import your existing content from another domain. The wizard recognises images and data such as address details, telephone numbers, and opening times.
To migrate your content, simply enter the URL of the old website in the next step. The wizard will now search for content elements on the original website. You just need to confirm your selection or restart the import if not all objects have been found.
You can also import photos from your Facebook page by simply entering your profile URL.
In the Content menu you will see an option to Manage Images. You will find all of the images and graphics that were imported from your previous website in the section From old website.
Now you can incorporate the individual images into the new design. The website builder editor allows you to design appealing picture galleries too.
You can also import an existing blog to your new website. To do this, switch to the Blog menu in the website builder and select Import Posts then enter the RSS feed of your old blog. This will be a URL with an XML file (i.e., with the extension: .xml).
Once the import is complete, you can find all posts under Manage Posts. Either choose selected articles to share on your new website or publish all articles at once by clicking on the corresponding button.
Once you've transferred your old website to your new IONOS hosting contract, you can edit your existing content elements, and add new ones.
All content from your old website is now integrated into the website builder. Just choose the parts you want to add to your new website.
