On any given day, thousands of website owners transfer websites from one provider to another for many reasons. It’s one of the most daunting tasks that a website owner can undergo. I’ve been a webmaster for many years and naturally I have moved a lot of web hosting accounts from provider to provider. I thought I would help by creating a step-by-step guide on how to transfer a website from your current hosting provider to a new one.
I’ll summarize what I will cover. First I will walk you through selecting a new hosting provider. This is important as you do not want to continue switching hosting providers. Then we’ll make sure you have your domain ownership in your control. This is very important. Then finally I will take you through signing up for hosting, preparing for the transfer and then verifying everything is completed.
