Come on Bluehost, it's as clear as day this plugin doesn't work. Look at your reviews. It looks like a way for them to create an additional charge for their customers. If you're migration plugin doesn't work, that's your fault. You shouldn't be charging us because of your shortcomings. You should be giving us free migration until you fix the plugin.

Please do not use this plugin, do not rely on it. It gave me major headaches. It was supposed to just transfer the site after a site migration, but this plugin let me down. Find another way to transfer your site, not with this plugin.

Plugin didn't work. After purchasing hosting, I'm told that they can only migrate it for an additional cost, because this migrator plugin only works to migrate from to, and not when the open source software from was used to build the original site.
