Changing Hosting company, moving WP blog? (7 posts)

    Hi everyone

    I'm going to be changing my hosting company. My question is, how would I go about moving my blog? My blog is on a sub domain, does that make it more difficult?

    Thanks everyone

    It's not a problem that you now have a sub domain, but it will be an easier 'move' if you now have your own domain for the new hosting company.
    I don't think you can have a sub domain on a different server, because subdomains like http://somesubdomain.example,com is actually http://example.com/somedomain/

    You are probably getting a new domain name anyway.

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the help.

    It's not a new domain name. It's the same old. The only think that's new is the hosting company. Please advise

    Thanks

    I'm guessing that you're moving your entire hosting account and not just the WordPress blog?

    If that's the case check with your new hosting company to see if they can do a transfer for you. The times that I've done that before I've had the new and old companies both using cPanel, so if you do too it is an extremely simple operation for your new hosting company to do a complete copy of your site over to their servers. Thiw includes everything (email addresses, site settings, files, databases, etc) so it's definiately a lot cleaner and eaiser way of doing it then trying to move wP by itself.
