Uh oh.. your web host has let you down for the last time! It could be politics, social mishaps, technical fails or terrible support, but there comes a time when you really need to make the move to a new web hosting provider.
If you are dissatisfied with your current web host or domain name registrar and you are considering changing your provider, don’t be overwhelmed at the process!
We’ve got you covered 🙂
It’s really not a difficult process and at Lunarpages we are here every step of the way to support and advise you on your transition to your new web host.
What is the best way to move over an existing account from another web hosting provider to Lunarpages for your web hosting needs?
Example: You are currently hosting all of your domain names and your web site with GoDaddy and you are dissatisfied with their service or reputation, so you are looking for a web host that has integrity, great service and reasonable prices.
Solution: Lunarpages can assist you and if you are for example hosted at GoDaddy we have a coupon code for a massive $60 off when you switch across to us! The code is Save60 and can be applied towards any NEW 12+ month Basic, Business, Windows or QuickSite account.
Let’s get started!
Here is how you can get it done in five easy steps
Step 2. Copy all files from your current site (downloaded or zipped and downloaded) onto your local computer. Make sure you do not cancel your old web hosting account yet. This way, if you forgot to backup something it will still be accessible.
Step 3. Using your new ftp address, user name and password, you would upload your files to your Lunarpages hosting account.
Step 4. Once the site is working successfully, you would go to your domain name registrar’s administration area and log in to change your DNS nameservers over to ours. We provide those when the account is activated. Your domain will be propagated throughout the Internet after the DNS changes are processed.
Step 5. After the propagation has completed and the domain is fully active, you could then cancel your previous account. If you were not able to view your ASP, JSP or PHP scripts/code before you should be able to now using your primary domain name.
