How to Transfer Your Website to HostGator


We try to make transferring over to HostGator easy.  You can either transfer your site over yourself, or you can take advantage of our website content transfer service.

HostGator offers FREE content transfers (content migrations) for new accounts and accounts that are being upgraded that require a server move, within 30 days of signup or upgrade.

HostGator also offers one FREE domain name registrar transfer with your hosting account.

Important Note:

Transferring your domain, and transferring your website content & emails are separate processes performed by different departments. Transferring your domain does not transfer your content, and transferring your content does not transfer your domain.

Be sure to follow the instructions below for each to ensure your website works properly.
