FTP Hostinger Migration Help Needed

Hi! I’m hoping somebody can help me out, I’ve tried to solve it myself for the past hours but without luck.

I created a website on wordpress itself with Elementor and was planning on using hostinger for the domain. For a custom plug-in that’s being built I need to get access to FTP and all the files, but I’m unable to connect hostinger with the wordpress site itself to get access to the public.html map. If I try to connect through hostinger I get the error: “Your website is built with WordPress.com. We do not provide direct migration for websites built with WordPress.com. You can try to transfer your website manually.” — I tried doing it manually but it seems like I’m unable to upload the export files I downloaded through all-in-one WP migration.

Does anybody know how to get around this? Is it still possible to migrate a site fully made on wordpress to hostinger and get access to all of the FTP files? Thanks so much in advance!
