  1. Hi i have a website hosted on site ground and it is going to expire in 5 days so i want to move to my own hosting so how can i backup data from there and get it up and running to my own hosting machine

  2. This video was very helpful for me! I am in no way experienced with website building and hosting, but this really helped me get my site up and running!

    I wish you were clearer about the login credentials of FileZilla. I had to look up how to login.

    Overall, thank you for this video! You’ve earned my subscription!

  3. I'm at the step at the 13:35 mark. In fileZilla when I put in the host, username, password and hit quick connect it says "Could not connect to server." Can anyone help me understand why? I know absolutely nothing about this kind of stuff.

  4. Thanks for the tutorial!! In my case I wiped out all my cPanel info as I have been doing this on my own and I had made many mistakes… long story short I’m glad I found your guide! I had a bit of trouble with FileZilla but finally made it! Now I’m looking for information on how to create Su domains?? So to add a /blog and /shop ?? Do you have a similar tutorial for that purpose? Thanks a lot!!!!!
