Don't Buy Web Hosting Without Reading This First!
« on: March 10, 2011, 08:22:59 PM »
Maybe you want to change web hosts because you have found a less expensive solution for your
web site.   You are not happy with the services your host is providing.   The response time for
technical support is too slow.   You make the decision to change web hosts.
Now you are faced with the daunting task of switching web hosts without losing the files and
beautiful design of your web site.   How do you achieve this?
If you probably have in the past, or maybe will need to now.   But chances are you will at some
point need to do this!
Save yourself time and MONEY with this DIY technique.   Host providers offer this service to
you , at costly measures.   I haven?t found one yet who charges less than $10.   And its only takes
a couple minutes to do! Follow these steps and you will be glad you did.   You?ll never need to rely
or pay someone else to transfer a website to another host ever again!!
Here are the steps you need to take:
1.   Make a complete copy of your web site.
Use your favorite FTP utility (I use SmartFTP.  com), to download all files to your computer from
your web host.   Don?t assume you already have all the files on your computer ? you may have
added some scripts from the Net that are on your server but not on your computer.
If you are using Dreamweaver, use the GET command to copy all your files.
If you are using Frontpage, use the import feature to make a complete copy of the old web site.

2.   Choose your new Web Host.
Choose a new Web Host that meets the needs of your web site (Go to www.  steeringhost.  com for your
some good reviews of top hosts and get a coupon or rebate for the host you choose!).

3.   Transfer your domain name
Contact the domain name registrar (place where you registered your domain name) and change
the Domain Name Server (DNS) or Name Server information to your new hosts DNS information
Your site is going to experience a downtime while your DNS record is being changed and
propagated through the world's WHOIS servers.   It will take about 24-72 hours for the process to
be completed.
Maintain any existing services set up on your old domain name such as email forwarding, web
pointing and website hosting until the transfer is complete to ensure continuity of your service.
You can check the progress of your domain name transfer by using a Domain Name Search
facility such @ steeringhost.  com.   You should see the details change from your previous Host to your


www.  steeringhost.  com
