Switching Webhosting Companies
How to Transfer Your Web Site & Email to a Our Web Hosting Service?
Ideally, you should plan the transfer one month before you terminate your old web hosting plan in order to have sufficient time to perform a smooth transfer. Doing the transfer in less than one month time frame will put your website in risk of inaccessible.
Files & Email Backup
You need backup or transfer all your files from current hosting companies by using FTP program or other method download all your file to your local PC. In addition to the normal HTML files, you may need to backup any script files, databases files, and even server logs files if it is necessary. You also download all your email to Outlook Express Or email program.
Transfer domain name
You need to get the domain EPP code from your current domain registrar. EPP code refers to the password that is needed to transfer the registration of com/net/org/info/biz domain names between registrars. The password is unique for each domain name. It will take 1-2 weeks to transfer the domain to us.
If you not transfer the domain name
Login to your current domain controller website And change the old DNS (Domain Name Servers) to point to the our DNS server.
In general, it will take about 24-48 hours to get the DNS record to change and propagate through all the WHOIS servers.
You will receive a notification email from your web hosting supporting team. In that email, it contains all the information required to set up website, this including the FTP server information. With that FTP information, you can now FTP to your new web hosting server and upload all your files. Due to the fact that different web hosting server may require different server environment to execute. Therefore, you need to verify all the scripts (such as CGI, Perl) are working accordingly. In addition, you should test all the hyperlinks in the normal web pages if possible to ensure no broken links.
