How to Transfer a Website

To transfer a website the first step would be to find a suitable hosting provider for your website. There are a lot of web hosting providers to choose from, but you’ll need to be careful in who you select next as you do not want to make a habit of moving from web host to web host.

1. Finding a Web Hosting Provider

To transfer a website the first step would be to find a suitable hosting provider for your website. There are a lot of web hosting providers to choose from, but you’ll need to be careful in who you select next as you do not want to make a habit of moving from web host to web host.

In this guide, I recommend DevelopICT for those looking to transfer from other providers not only because of their commitment to the environment, feature rich hosting, affordable pricing, scalability, 24/7 support but how easy they make it to transfer a website from another provider.

2. Confirming Domain Ownership

You should be in full control of your domain name and the registrant details that are associated with it. Not having this up to date and in your control can be painful later on. Before moving your website, figure this out and make sure the registrant details are in your name and e-mail.

Once you’ve got the domain name in your control. You need to decide whether or not you want to transfer domain registrars or simply switch the domain name servers (DNS) on the domain name.

3. Sign up for a Hosting Account

As I mentioned earlier, I recommend DevelopICT as they make it the easiest to transfer to. It’s actually a pretty hands off approach

Once you’ve signed up DevelopICT and your hosting account has been activated, you will receive a welcome e-mail. This will include crucial information regarding your new account.
