Transfer files between hosting accounts

If you need to move your entire website, or only specific files between your different hosting accounts, its easy!


If you have more than one hosting account, you can move or transfer files from one account to another using FTPS and your computer.

  1. Download the files. Make sure that you are using the FTPS settings for the account you need to download your site files from.
  2. Disconnect your FTPS session.
  3. Connect to the account that you want to upload the files to.
  4. Upload your files. Using the same idea used to download the site files, just going the other direct.

  Note: If any of the accounts that you are trying to transfer files to or from are a Yahoo Web Hosting Basic plan, you don't have the option of using FTPS.
