    Hi,

    I have a site currently hosted by Yah00. I want to move it to another host, retain the same functionality , complete with shopping cart.

    It's at thest0ckcarcenter dot com. Take a look and come up with a $ figure.

    Pls PM me marketer_2006 at yah00 dot com

    Thanks

    Its not that difficult to do, all you need to do is download the files via ftp, then backup any databases that there are then just, upload the files and the databases to your new server and edit any script config files.

    It's not that easy, unless both hosts use the same hostname reference for the databases.

    For example with Hostgator you use "localhost" while with Godaddy you use xxxx.secureserver.net

    Just a tip:rolleyes:
