How do I change the host name

If you have decided to change the host for your web site, one of the questions you will ask yourself is “how do I change the host name?" In order to answer that question, let's back up and look at the overall transfer process.

When you are preparing to switch hosts, it is a good idea to allow at least a month to six weeks between the beginning of the process and the launching of your site on the new server. During this period, you will have copied and saved all the files and directories related to your web site. Leave out nothing. Once your new account is established, you will be issued a temporary URL and given instructions on how to upload all the directories and files, replicating them on the new server.

You will also receive information that will help answer the question “how do I change the host name?" While there may be some variance from one web host to the next, based on the server they use, typically there will be instructions on how to access the new server and locate a section that allows you to manage the name server. Often at that juncture you will have the option of creating a new name server based on your domain name. Click on that option and enter the host name as you would like it to appear, then save your work. The good news is that the answer to “how do I change the host name?" may be just this simple.

On other type servers, you may find that you have to go in and change specific files as part of the answer to “how do I change the host name?" If this is the case, then when you change hosts, you will be provided with a listing of what files to modify.

When it comes to the question “how do I change the host name?", you may feel that your talents are not quite advanced enough to handle the answer. Don't worry. Your new host will most likely have someone who can walk you through the process and then check your work to make sure everything is done properly. After you make the first change in the host name, you will probably feel much more comfortable. Like anything, changing the host name is something you can learn to do.
