    • Hello Minecraft,
      What actually are you nervous about? Losing your website contents or what.
      Well, you should create a backup of your site contents before switching to another platform.

      And yes, there is always a way to import your site contents when switching to another platform.
      But I would like to know two things:
      1. Which platform is your site running on currently.
      2. Which platform are you planning on switching to.

      From the two questions, it would be easy to find a way of importing your site contents when switching.

    so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    A great read. I will definitely be back.
