WebsiteHostingAfrica take care of the website transfer for you free of charge.
Step by step to transfer your website to our servers
Sign up for a website hosting account
Once you’ve signed up for your account, you are going to receive the control panel details from us.
Getting ready to Transfer your website
Send us the login details of you former host and we shall take care of site migration from here. During this process, you will be asked to change the DNS (Domain Name System) on your domain name to our name servers. This process takes 24-48 hours for it to take effect.
Test and Confirm
After your website transfer is completed, you test your website to ensure that things are working well after you have changed the DNS and waited the 24-48 hours for the domain to resolve everything should be working correctly.
Delete your old Hosting Account
Our suggestion is to keep the old hosting account active for at least a week. This way if there are any issues during the website transfer process, we can be able to correct it easily.
In case you are transferring the domain, ask for An Authorization Code (also called an Auth Code or EPP Key) from your domain registrar. Transfer Domain Registrars means you’re changing domain registration provider.
