    Hello!

    1. You could download files by FTP (File Transfer Protocol) from your server. There are some free FTP programs: FileZilla (for Mac, Windows and Linux), CyberDuck (for Mac and Windows), Cute FTP (PAID for Windows and Mac) and so on. You will need to configure choosed FTP program, with your FTP details from your server (if your website is hosted on a shared hosting, commonly you can find them in your cPanel at FTP accounts section). With all of above mentioned softwares you can download your website from old server. You will need to follow a same process to upload your website to he new server.

    If your website is made using a CMS or something which uses MySQL (or other database tool), you must export your old database from phpMyAdmin section and import it through the new phpMyAdmin (after creating a new database).

    2. If you don't want to download your website on your computer or if you have a slower internet connection, you should try mover.io website and use them for moving your website.

    If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to tell me.

    Hope this helps!

    You can use FTP for file transfer and phpMyAdmin for database backup.
    If you are using cPanel or other control panel then you have an backup option on your panel..
    Please edit your config file after restore to another server.

    Chancey,

    The best way should be to ask your new hosting provider to transfer the account for you. What control panel do you use with your current hosting company?

    You will need to download the database within the cpanel backend and download the website files through a FTP client.

    You should use ftp client for that. You can use flashfxp or cuteftp softwares to quickly download your files from the server and for database you should use backup using phpmyadmin

    As everyone said those are great ways to do so. If your trying to figure out how to using an shh client to get the files and/or directories. here are a few ways to go about doing that.
    I guess you can say this is a tutorial of sorts.
    First off go here.
    http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html
    then choose your OS to download the program.
    if you are using windows you your best option would be to download the


    It doesn't really matter where you save it too. most save this in their root directory.

    after you get it running, fill in the needed information on the GUI,
    after this is done successfully a command prompt(shell) should pop up
    type psftp hit enter
    then you get a message saying no host name specified
    on the next line typ open what your.urlname.com hit enter
    next choose yes to the prompt
    type your ftp username hit enter
    then your password

    now that your to search for files you want to download
    you woud change the directory by doing the following:

    cd pubic_html

    if you want do download the entire directory
    type get public_html

    or for specific files get public_html/somefilename.extenuation.

    by default files download to the dowload folder on your machine.

    I hope this helps.
