    I got a website that will never see the life of day again so I want to transfer all the content to a brand new domain. What is the easiest way to do this? Can I just copy all the files associated with that domain using an FTP program, then paste them all in the new domain directory?

    try this.. if you are adding a new domain in your panel. you will see this option "Document Root" write the folder path on there ( the one with content or your old website ) or if you already added the domain. just change the document root.. are you using cpanel or DA?

    If you're using Wordpress, I highly recommend a plugin called "Backup Buddy". It used to take me an hour to move a website to a new domain, now it takes me 15 min. Very easy to use and works perfect.
