The Basic Steps
Here are the steps that may be required to transfer your website from your existing hosting company to NetFronts. These steps will also aid in making a change of web hosts transparent to your website visitors. We would be glad to help move your site seamlessly to our web hosting service. Please view and complete our request form to find out if we can help.
Make a Backup of Existing Website
Order Web Hosting Plan with NetFronts
Fill out “Move My Site” Form
By moving your site for you, NetFronts will take care of the following tasks that you would otherwise perform yourself:
NetFronts will contact you within 72 hours of submitting
the form and provide you with information for reviewing
and approving the site move.
Approve Your Site on NetFronts’ Web Server
Change DNS (Domain Name Services)
To update your DNS so that the Internet will point to your website files on NetFronts’ servers, contact your domain registrar (the company where you purchased your domain), request a DNS update, and provide the above information. View example email/request <link>. Popular domain registrars are Network Solutions/Verisign, Enom, Register.com, GoDaddy.com, etc. You may even have a user name and password assigned to you in which you can log in at your registrar's website and make your own changes to DNS.
Once the DNS information is changed, proper domain propagation
can still take 48 hours to be acknowledged by all
of the web servers and ISP’s on the internet. They
all seem to update their records at different times,
but it usually happens universally within 2 days.
