Transferring from one website host to another is an easy process if you take the right steps to prepare. If you already have a website and are thinking about making the switch to Bizzy Mama Hosting, we can help you to create a plan to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Contact us prior to placing your new hosting account order to discuss a plan for your complimentary website migration!

Currently selling on Etsy? You may be able to populate your new online store by downloading a copy of your CSV file. We can help!

How to transfer your website from another host:

STEP ONE

Time to make a change? Choose a Managed eCommerce or other small business website hosting plan that will meet your unique business needs and proceed through the checkout process to initiate your new services.

Not sure which plan will work for you? Open a ticket to discuss your ideas and we’ll be happy to provide you with a suggestion!

STEP TWO

Decide whether you will be making the switch immediately or if you will need a little bit of time to build and populate your new website first.

If you do need time, select to have your new website services setup using a “temporary URL“.

STEP 3

Begin building your new website. Create your pages, categories, and repopulate all of your products. You may also have your new template installed during this step!

If you qualify for a complimentary website migration, we can recreate the content on the new site for you!

STEP FOUR

When you’re satisfied with the content of your new website, backup your old site’s database and files. Save these old files for future reference and long term storage.

Then, recreate any @domain.com email accounts in your new cPanel.

STEP FIVE

If you haven’t already, now is the time to bring your new website live by updating the nameservers on your domain. In rare cases this part of the process may take up to 72 hours. This is due to something called “domain propagation”. Plan accordingly!

We can help! Not sure what any of this means? We can take care of these steps for you- free of charge!

STEP SIX

Once the 72 hour waiting period has passed, and you’re sure that your website is fully on our servers, you can cancel your old website hosting services.

Want to be doubly sure? Let us know when you update the nameservers and we’ll check in and communicate with you through progress!

That’s it! Now sit back, relax, and enjoy your beautiful new website. Join us on our Facebook community and chat group to share the exciting news and show off your site!

Not all websites can be transferred as-is due to licensing and software differences. To determine if your website qualifies for a complimentary migration, contact us prior to placing your order to discuss your options.
