change the host

If our site is moved as quickly as possible, while also minimizing or eliminating the need for any site downtime. Then what steps can we follow?
If we are using FTP to move our site:
then we have to
our existing site's IP address
our FTP user name
our FTP password
If we are using FrontPage to move our site:
our FrontPage user name
our FrontPage password
We have to consider also:
our domain log in details
From our new web host
If we are using FTP to move our site:
our new site's IP address
our FTP user name
our FTP password
If we are using FrontPage to move our site:
then we can make these changes
our FrontPage user name
our FrontPage password
A list of the name servers our new site will use email. If our previous web host allowed us to receive email addressed to a user at our domain and our new web host also offers this service, we will need to create an email account on our new web host for each of the email accounts on our old web host.
The reason for making email account is because within a short period of time after we have transferred our domain, email will stop being directed to our old web host, and will instead get directed to our new web host.
If our new web host is not configured to accept mail at the same addresses as our old web host, the email may not be able to be delivered, and will be returned to the sender.
Configuring our new email accounts in advance of transferring our domain name allows us to avoid this situation, and ensures that no mail is lost.
FTP is provided by web hosts nearly universally and we will almost certainly have FTP access to both our existing and new web hosts. FTP is perhaps the most desirable mechanism to use when moving our site because it allows us to avoid the need for any site downtime.
If we do not already have a copy of our web site on our home or office computer, the first step in moving our site is to download a copy from our existing web host.
we should have a folder on our computer containing our entire web site, and using our web browser to open any of the `html' files contained in this folder should display the page correctly.
Once we have verified that we have a working copy of our site on our home or office computer, we are ready to upload our site to our new web host.
we now need to connect to the FTP server of your new web host, and log in using the user name and password details which they have provided.
