Webserver Setup Getting Started Guide – Useful Information
Think of a domain name as your own address and a web hosting account as a place in your house where you can place your furniture. These are two different things, so the transfer is different from the migration. When you transfer your domain name to HostPapa, it does not mean that your website files will also move and vice versa. You can initiate the transfer of your domain name yourself from your dashboard. However, to migrate your website files from your previous hosting provider, you'll have to send us a support ticket so that we can take care of it for you.
