The process of switching your web hosting service providers is simple and can be accomplished with minimal hassle and downtime as long as the following steps are followed in the order listed. E Shop Hosts can assist you with transferring and helping you each step of the way.

Before you start

Ensure that you have a made a full working copy of your website files, databases, cgi scripts, etc. this can be done quite easily within your existing hosting providers cpanel. Once you have done this double check that you have saved them to your computer. Make a record of all your existing email address account settings and passwords from your current provider.

Your new E Shop Hosts eCommerce Hosting account

Select and pay for your chosen E Shop Hosts web hosting package using an email address that is on a different domain from the one you are wishing to transfer.

Then in your E Shop Hosts cpanel area or by using an FTP program upload your website files and install and configure your databases and then configure your email accounts.

You will be able to test your website is uploaded and installed properly by using your instant access url provided within your ‘Welcome Email‘ from E Shop Hosts.

The switch-over

Contact your Domain registrar and have the DNS information for your domain changed to point at the corresponding Pipe Ten’s Name Servers:

  • ns1.eshophosts.co.uk
  • ns2.eshophosts.co.uk

Then from anything between an hour to possibly 72 hours wait for the propegation of new nameserver details, usually within approximately 12-24 hours check your domain name to ensure it is pointing to your new E Shop Hosts web server.

At that point you should cancel service with your previous host provider. Make sure they remove your domain name from their DNS servers.

Check your email settings

Check the email settings in your email software to make sure your settings work with the new service. This should be something similar to:

  • Incoming POP3 Server: mail.yourdomain.com
  • Outgoing SMTP Server: mail.yourdomain.com

Thats it!

Now you have a reliable, hassle free with fast and freindly support hosting service with E Shop Hosts
