    Hi Folks,

    I have started working on a blog site, and have a .co.uk domain and got hosting for that through 123-reg.co.uk.

    I have put a few pages and a few posts up but nothing major done to it yet.
    Then I came up with a better name and got the .com (its not a keyword domain).
    Both are registered through 123-reg. Hosting is also with 123.

    I now want to switch my hosting from the .co.uk to the .com

    How do I go about this?
    Will I lose the work I've done to the site??

    Can I get 123-reg.co.uk to do this for me?

    Thanks
    Drago

    You say you want to switch your hosting. I'm not sure i understand that - do you mean you want to move the whole blog including content from the .com to the .co.uk?
    I doubt 123 will do it for you.
    If you are using wordpress you can move the whole blog from the .co.uk hosting to the .com. (I'm sure someone else can recommend a tool for this)
    Or simply you could just set up a new wordpress installation on the .com and move the content over using the export and import tools in wordpress.
