• Change the hosting of the functioning site

    • views 1253

    Good afternoon! I have a website. Hosting for this site is provided by the company created with the site. I`m not working with them anymore, and the website was discontinued by the hosting provider. How do I transfer it to another hosting company?

    Hi! You can ask the old hoster to provide a backup site (files and database, if your site uses it) If this isn`t possible, you can try to make a backup yourself via the control panel (if you have access to it). When you have a backup of the data, you can contact the new hoster to find out the servers they use, and then install them for your domain in the control panel of the registrator (if you do not have access to it, you can send a request to the service support). After updating the DNS, which can take up to 24 hours, the domain will be forwarded to a new server.

    Then you have to download files from your existing backup to the server of the new hoster and, if the site uses the database, create a new database in the new host`s panel and import its copy from the backup. Also, you will need to edit the site configuration files, taking into account the data of the new database.

    Ask this question to a new hosting provider. As a rule, it should be enough to provide archives of the site (or access data from the control panel of the previous one) to a new hoster. Otherwise, they`ll let you know what information may be required for the transfer.
