Web Site Migration Instructions needed

By nerdbox ·

I currently am using a service provider that has registered 3 of my domain names and re-registers them every year. Also I am using the same provider for server space for the websites. I would like to get step by step instructions to migrate these pages to another service provider and gain control over the domain names they are registering for me as I think I can do this for significantly less $. Please let me know if there is any other info you may need.

(given your new provider will maintain all the same services)

1) get an good FTP program
2) get the FTP addresses for your current and new websites
3) FTP the entire directory tree from your current site
4) FTP the entire directory to your new website
5) Call your new site provider and ask them their process for switching the registration to their control (I think it requires you to request the site key ID for the transfer of the registration from the old provider, and then giving that to your new one and letting them input it and take control for it).

Good luck
