    Answer


    If the existing site is a WordPress site, the content will be left untouched, but if its a non-WordPress site the only way to get the content in the new website would be to manually copy-paste the content you want to keep. In that case I would recommend to temporarily copy the texts to a seperate "plain-text" editor (for example notepad if you are on a PC). I would advise to NOT paste the content to a fancy markup editor like Microsoft Word (or any other graphical oriented document editor), as in that case CMS specific markup will likely get embedded there too which likely can cause issues along the way on the new site. Also be sure to download your media files (images, videos, etc.) to a save place, so you can upload those later on.
