For a limited period we are offering our website transfer service free of charge when you purchase a hosting plan - one of our technicians will transfer your entire website to the new hosting plan Take the headache out of moving your website - To transfer your website click here to order a hosting plan
Or do it yourself by following the instructions below
- First sign up for a web hosting plan. Start by ordering any of our web hosting plans.
- Upload your website files using FTP software such as filezilla or any other site publishing software (Filezilla, Dreamweaver, etc.) using the server IP address that we provide, if your website uses a MySQL database you can transfer this using phpmyadmin
- In your New Account email, you will find a temporary link to access your new web site before anything goes live. You can view your site to make sure its working properly (for example: http://18.104.22.168/~USERNAME/ where 22.214.171.124 is replaced with the ip of your server).
- In your New Account email there will be a pair of DNS Name Servers. Update your domain at your registrar (where you bought your domain) to use those Name Servers. If registrar doesn't provide an interface to accomplish this please email your registrar or call them and tell them to change your name servers. It will take 12-48 hours for the dns update to take effect.
