That's a good deal really :)

phpBB has a 'system dump' facility so you can dump out the whole site to your PC and then load it up to another provider - it's not too hard to do but 60 quid a year is a fiver a month - not a lot - okay, better if its nowt but hey, who's paying the lecky bill?

If you must move I can point you in the right direction :)

BTW - your new domain isn't appearing.

Freeservers tell me that to move to another host all I need do is

You can create a backup of your files via your control panel and another cPanel host can create a new account on their server based on your backup.


Sounds too easy to be true to me!

Bloody link was wrong lol

I've moved phpBB sites before - easy :)

Go to ACP, select Maintenance then select Full, Gzip, Download and Select All then submit - whole site on yer PC - reverse the process on the new site after creating the phpBB site :)

I've still got the Wordpress installation though. I don't know how MySQL works - it's not just a matter of FTP all the files to my PC & then FTPing them back to the new host?

Well I already do Wordpress backups - but that's just the content, I don't think it covers the widgets, plugins &theme.

That's correct - you have to install your extras again...

It's amazing how many businesses just don't do the simple effective and free things to promote business. I've had 25000 visits to my website from Google Places!

Cheers for all the information. yeah, I think most business should make the most out of google and just social media network opportunities as much as possible. And I mean it's free, so why not!

I think the best way to promote your business is social media media sites because most of the people are online there and you can easily share your services with people and also get feedback for your services that also help you to improve your product or services that you are pffering.

Hi, I just visit your sites which is very nice and developed with an attractive design. I must appreciate you for sharing the links for promoting our business. but I also want to talk about the social site method who use Facebook, twitter and some other social sites. so what you think which one is more beneficial ?
