Welcome to Guided Transfer!

When you purchase a Guided Transfer from WordPress.com, our Guided Transfer Happiness Engineers will expertly move a copy of your site to a WordPress instance on one of our preferred hosts.  We then provide two weeks of guidance and support to help you settle into the role of webmaster of your new self-hosted WordPress site.
