Hey all, I need to pick your brains regarding website transfers, what i need to know is, i have a website using a domain for example ( www.the-big-bear.com ) and ive now got a new domain which is for example ( www.big-bear.com ) because the domain has changed slightly, would i need to do any alterations to any of the files before uploading via FTP to a new host who has the new domain? or can i just upload to new host and domain without any trouble, its a PHP-NUKE site, thanks if anyone can shed some info on this matter :thumbsup:

Hey big C.O.Z!

You should be able to just upload your site like you did before with our other domain. The only thing I'd check is if you used the old domain in any URLs or any code in your pages. Otherwise, it should be good to go! :thumbsup:

The bigest problem is going to be that you will loose your Search Engine Rankings for an indeterminate period.
