If the Web Site you want to move is without databases you should take following steps:

  • sign up with the new web hosting provider

  • upload your web site files to your new hosting account

  • go to your domain name registrar and point your domain to servers of your new host. Typically you should enter names of the 2 nameservers of your new hosting company and save. Now your domain should be pointed to your new host. It usually takes up to 48 hours for a nameserver change to propagate on the net.If you bought your domain from your previous hosting company then you may have to contact them to do it

  • Once the nameservers have updated you should cancel your hosting account with the old host

To cancel your account, you need to send in a ticket to your host's support requesting the account to be cancelled. Be sure that you have all of your files and data backed up.

You should now have your site hosted by your new host and your old company account canceled.

If the Web Site you want to move uses databases you should take following steps:

  • sign up with the new hosting provider

  • backup your database, get it and store it on your PC. This way you ensure that no database information is lost. Upload your web site to the new hosting account. Create a database with the same name as your old database and the restore it using the backup file

  • go to your domain name registrar and point your domain to servers of your new host. Typically you should enter names of the 2 nameservers of your new hosting company and save.

  • we recommend to temporarily stop your web site until the nameservers update. This will prevent data to be written to the database on the site on your previous account
