Transferring Your Domain to Siteground
Last Updated on January 18th, 2020
In this article, I’m going to walk you through the steps in transferring your existing domain name to a new webhost. While it has specific application to Siteground, the points are relevant to most webhosts. It does assume that you’ve already signed up at Siteground. (Remember, you need three things to run a website: (1) a Domain (2) a Webhost and (3) a Content Management System (CMS) eg. WordPress. You’ve got the Domain, now you’re transferring it to your new Webhost. Only once this is complete can we install WordPress for you.)
Okay, before initiating the transfer make sure you have backups or copies of anything you want from your old host. This includes content and images from your old website. Or copies of email information, if your your old webhost also hosted your email account.
Right, I’m going to walk you through the transfer steps. It may sound a load of mumbo jumbo, but if you follow me step by step, it’s a cakewalk.
