Hello All,

I currently have a free site with a domain name like and would like change its domain name to format.

I understand that I have to register the new name with a service like, but I am wondering how I transfer my old site to the new domain name.

I am keeping the site on the freehostia servers.

Thanks for any help!
John :)

Please note that you will be able to register your domain name also with your account with us via the Register/Transfer section of your account control panel with us. Once the domain name is registered you will have to either to copy your site content to from your subdomain name folder to your domain name folder via the File Manager menu or just to redirect your domain name to point to your subdomain name folder. You will be able to do that via Edit menu next to your domain name via the Subdomain Manager menu of your account with us. Once you access the Edit menu you will have to set the default path to point to the subdomain name folder and to apply the changes. If you experience any problems I would advise you to open a trouble ticket from your account with us so we will be able to assist you further. You will be able to do this via the Open New Ticket menu of your account control panel Help Center section.

Best Regards,
