I just invested over a week uploading backed up files, testing to be sure the uploaded Help Customers Buy blog worked on a different domain name before I moved my https://www.helpcustomersbuy.com domain to HostGator. This process was so complicated because of some problems with my backups.
That’s history now. However, moving from one hosting company to another is not for the faint hearted. There were lots of lessons along the way. I’m grateful to Yahoo! for a couple years of hosting my website and this blog. However, if you want a WordPress blog on your own hosted site then I encourage you to look into HostGator or someone else who plays nice with WordPress.
