Think about it – when you move, you first find a new location, then sign the paperwork, pack up all of your belongings, and physically move them to the new location. If you are moving a business, after doing all of this, you finish the move off by hanging a new sign over your door to advertise your new digs.
Moving your site is something similar – only a virtual version.
You shop for a new location, sign the paperwork to rent hosting space, package up your site to ensure that all of your assets come with you, transfer everything to your new web host, and then point your domain to your new host by changing the DNS record; this final step is in essence hanging the sign over your new shop door.
Though it can be a process, it is completely attainable.
Switching your host requires completing a series of actions in a specific order to ensure that everything transfers over properly. To move your website to a new host, complete the following steps.
First Sign in to Namecheap.com, select “Domain List” from the left sidebar and click on the Manage button next to your domain:
Then proceed to “Domain” tab, scroll to the “Nameservers” section.
Now click on the dropdown arrow, select “Namecheap BasicDNS” and click the “save icon” next to it.
Then click on the “Advanced DNS” tab and click the “AddNew Record” in the “Host Records” section
- Select “CName Record” in the “type” drop down.
- Type “www” in the “host” field
- Type “ghs.google.com” in the “value” field and save
Add and save the Blogger 4 “A Records” as seen in the screenshot below :
Your domain should start working after some hours.
