New Content Transfers Form

The Migrations Department and HostGator Development Team have made the transfer process as simple as possible by creating a 3 step form that validates your HostGator hosting account information.

The transfer form is located at the URL below. The information on the first page will provide important information regarding website migration and wait times for our transfer services:

Step 1: Select the Destination Hosting Package

First select the hosting package you wish to migrate your content to from the Hosting Account drop down box in the Select the Destination HostGator Account section:

Step 2: Enter Your Old Hosting Information

Now you will have the opportunity to specify the account(s) that you wish to be transferred to your HostGator Hosting Account. Depending on the hosting package you purchased from HostGator, you may qualify for one or more free transfers within 30 days of purchasing the hosting package.

If you do not qualify for a free transfer, we can provide a quote for doing the transfer. To see if you qualify for a free transfer, be sure to visit the HostGator Website Transfers page, which gives full details.
