Manually transferring a website to Hostinger
Updated over a week ago

If you wish to migrate your website to Hostinger, our migration team would be more than happy to do this for you for free! All you need to do is fill out a migration request in your panel. You can find out more about it here: How to Migrate Your Website to Hostinger.

Alternatively, you can transfer your website manually. First, you will need to download a backup of your website's files from your current hosting.

Next, upload the files to our server. This can be easily done with our File Manager, or you can use an FTP client.

If your website is using a database, you will need to complete these steps as well:

  1. Backup the database on the old server by exporting it via phpMyAdmin

  2. Finally, update the configuration files of your site to match your new database details

Once your website is uploaded, you can point your domain to Hostinger. After up to 24 hours, once propagation is completed, your website will be fully working on your new hosting 😊
