If you have a website already made and you want to transfer it to super fast hosting then my recommendation is always going to be WPX hosting.

The following instructions will show you how to get this set up.

First you need to go to: WPX Hosting

Then Scroll down until you find the pricing table and click START NOW as shown below:

Now you need to figure out if you need a URL or not.  If you already own a URL then choose the option on the left that says HOSTING ONLY.  If you need a url then choose the option on the right that says I NEED A NEW DOMAIN + HOSTING. The image below shows the option where a URL is already owned.

You now need to choose your billing plan.  Pick the 1 year payment so you save some money and you don’t have to worry about your website going down if there is a problem with your credit card during the month. Click CONTINUE once you select your billing cycle.

You now need to fill out your Billing information. Once you click submit you will also have to accept the GDPR conditions.

Once all your payment info gets entered make sure the invoice is marked as PAID and that you get a confirmation email.

Next, you can request the WPX moves your website over to their servers.

To do this look for SUPPORT in the menu and then click on WEBSITE MIGRATION REQUEST.

There will then be a page with a few optional questions.  Unless you have a reason for it, leave the rest of those fields blank.  The only field I recommend changing is the question that asks about the W3 Total Cache Installation and configuration. Doing this will help to speed up your website.

If you are moving from one Hosting Company to another then you will need to change the DNS at the place where you bought your URL.
