    Hi,

    I have presently a well populated forum hosting on G0Daddy but have recently signed my blog up at H0stagtor using their baby plan.

    Am I right in understanding that on the baby plan I can host as many domains as I like?

    If I want to move the forum over (pHPBB) - is this easy to do, what do I need to do with regards to getting everything over from G0Daddy as this is something I have not done before ie. changed hosting.

    Thx in advance.

    From Godaddy just export your database via phpmyadmin. then download all your folder, change nameservers of the domain. wait until they are updated. Next go to hostgator, upload your folder, add domain to folder, go to phpmyadmin create a new db with same credentials as one on godaddy and import your db.
    If you need more detailed help I ll be on ICQ or YM

    Do not move to Hostgator, if the load goes above a limit, they will suspend you & no data comes back from their suspended account..
    Just letting you know bout this.
    Regards

    Buy a VPS, you will have bigger limits. Or fi you go with hostgator use a cupon code to spend less
