I need some explanation in layman's term to help do my transfer.
I am currently with InternetBusinessHosting. It is a fairly new hosting service in the UK. Am using it only cos it comes free for a year with a course that I bought.
I now want to transfer my hosting to Hostgator. They will do 1 free transfer for me, but I need to provide my FTP username & password and Control Panel URL, Username and password. Isn't the FTP username and password the same as the Control Panel username and password? Also where can I find the Control Panel URL? My current host works with CPanel, if that is any good.
For the other sites that I want to transfer to hostgator. I read Aletta's reply below that I will need to upload all the content from my site onto hostgator. How do I do that? I don't mean to be a pain, but I am not techy, so it is very much appreciated if you can tell me which icon I need to go to or a step by step of what to do?
I know how to change my DNS so the next step is easy.
After these, do I just wait 48hrs before checking my site and if it is still life, it means that the transfer had been completed smoothly?
Many thanks in advance.
