Moving Hosts From GoDaddy To Blue Host (4 posts)

    I am moving a clients blog site from Go Daddy to Blue Host. I have never done this before.

    I have read numerous tutorials and frankly I am a little intimidated that I might mess things up big time.

    I have never backed up or restored a data base, or used phpAdmin, reconfigured a wp-config.php file.

    Can some one recommend the a very detailed step by step procedure to get this accomplished?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    You don't have to "move" it, just point the DNS servers to ns1.bluehost.com and ns2.bluehost.com. The cancel the hosting at Godaddy but keep them as the registrar. Then go over to your Bluehost account and add the domain to your account and setup your website.
