Transfer Domain(s) to OccHosting with No Down Time!
Posted by Barry Tarbet on 21 August 2006 06:10 PM

The first step is to find a new host you wish to join.
Make sure not to cancel with your old webhost until your ready to terminate the account..
Now that you have two hosting providers -- the old and the new,

Check your welcome email for your instant access ID or you can login to your new host control panel
and switch to a dedicated IP by clicking on your domain, you will see option "dedicated ip / shared IP" just click on Dedicated

you can upload your entire site using the instant access id or dedicated IP in place of "host name"

When your web files have been successfully moved over to the new hosting account, you can change your domain names DNS.

the DNS changes usually take approx upto 24 hrs to complete.

Dont forget to setup your email accounts on the new server by logging into your control panel and selecting the eMail icon -
I would suggest using the same user name and password if possible.
Once your domain(s) DNS has changed over to the new host, - you can safely cancel your old host account with no downtime.

If you have any questions or if you need assistance with the dns changes - please dont hesitate to contact OccHosting Support,
