    Hello everyone!

    This is my first time transferring my blog to a .com.. I bought web hosting at alibabahosting.com.
    Actually this is my first website and I really don't know what to do.
    I've searched in google but I really don't understand the steps by step procedure.
    Please help.

    Thanks in advance!

    First question: What blog platform will you use?

    After you decide on that, search for "cpanel installing XXX cms" where XXX is your chosen platform. You'll get tons of tutorials.

    After installing the new platform, it's time to set the looks, theme, css, etc.

    Then export your blogspot data and import it into the new platform. Also searching for export blogspot and import XXX will lead you to answers.

    It's a bit of work the first time but soon you'll be doing it easily. Also I'd recommend getting used to the command line, it's much more powerful and faster than cpanel.

    Honestly sir I really don't know what to reply.. I just know that I am using a blogspot blogger with a gaming template.

    Can I directly transfer my blog to the cPanel? or do I have to transfer it to a wordpress platform?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thats not really offshore as they are located in the EU where US jurisdiction has full control.
    However when you need help to transfer it let me know

    I have done this for more than 5 websites. I have transfered my authority website from blogger to wordpress without losing any traffic. If you don't understand those tutorials, then how can you do it? You don't need to do anything in your wordpress cpanel. Everything can be done on wp-dashboard. The most important thing is, if you don't configure it correctly, you are going to lose all your ranking.

    You can't directly transfer your blog, it involves an export/import from one blog to the other. cpanel is a host management system, not a blog platform. you use cpanel to install/uninstall apps and stuff, but not for the blog itself, so you can't just import the blog into cpanel.

    If you're lost at first, why not hire someone to transfer it for you? Or get a wordpress.com plan with your new domain or something like that?

    Been looking at google but I am having doubts because comments were like their blog became spam after transferring to wordpress.
    Anyways been contacting the web hosting staff and I will try my best to transfer it my own.

    After you move to Wordpress you may have difficulty with spam in comments, so you should search around this forum and see what can be used to thwart that.

    It's a big jump going out on your own, as you have noticed. But totally worth the effort IMO
