Transferring a Joomla website to a different hosting company

Aug 5, 2013 by deepa1
Hello all..
I had multiple issues with my Joomla hosting provider and I came to a conclusion that I have to switch hosting companies. I plan to switch to GoDaddy. What is the procedure that I should follow in order to switch hosting companies?
Many thanks

You can use Akeeba pro. It can  make backups, restore and  transfer your site from Joomla backend. If you use the free version you can  backup and then copy manually  over archive and  then use kickstart package for unarchiving and installing.You would also need FTP access  on both hosts and access to your Joomla admin on both hosts, and an ftp client such as FileZilla
