The transfer process is completely painless for a majority of our clients, however in some instances, our help might be required. If you need assistance in transferring your existing website or domain name, our skilled team of network technicians can assist you in transferring to TLCWebHosting.com Inc.. Be sure to check out our help documents and online demos for further assistance.
If your site is hosted with another provider…
(This process is very simple! We recommend you follow the following steps to ensure zero downtime.)
- Setup a new account with TLCWebHosting.com Inc..
- Upload all of your website files to the TLCWebHosting.com Inc. web servers. Test your site on the new server.
- Set up your email boxes on the new server through the control panel “Email Accounts” tool.
- Then simply update your name servers on your domain record (with whomever your registrar is) to point to TLCWebHosting.com Inc.‘s web servers. Your Welcome Letter would have the name servers for your site but you always contact our technical support staff for this information.
- If you have your domain registered with your existing hosting company, we can physically transfer the domain in – this is NOT necessary and is only personal preference.
- We normally suggest waiting 2-3 days to ensure a completely streamlined transfer.
- At this point, you can cancel your old web hosting service.
- Following the above easy steps will ensure a completely streamline transfer with ZERO downtime.

Once you have ordered web hosting services, contact our team and let us know you would like for us to transfer your website files from your old provider.
