I know it's hard to understand all this by reading.
It is much simpler in the doing than the reading. Really!
So *please* contact me with any questions, email, phone, or skype chat.
Most hosting providers have online forms where you sign up. They will expect you to have a credit card or PayPal account for online payment. Everything is done automatically.
Your hosting provider will give you the information for this (server name, login, password).
Your files are on the new server, but the world still sees your site at the old one, because the "DNS" (the phone book of the internet) still says your site is at the old server's IP number. You don't want to change the DNS yet, in case your site isn't yet looking right. So you can tell your computer to see your site at the new host:
ns1.websitewelcome.com ns2.websitewelcome.comThis will tell the whole world that your domain now lives at the new host. (In this example, "websitewelcome.com" is the dns server for HostGator, where TibetBridges lives)
Don't update your site while you are waiting. You may be updating at the old location, not the new one.
If your site is being hosted on TibetBridges ... Jeff Lebow is the person who is providing this web server for us. We can give back to him by using this power the best we can!
