1st buy a hosting space den change the nameservers of ur domain to where u bought the hosting. move all ur website files to one folder and zip it with the compress tool on ur file manager.

log in to ur new hosting cpanel. once you are logged into your hosting control panel, locate the FileManager tool. You’d be transferred to the root server directory, called public_html or www.

In case you are willing to upload your files to
any sub-directory, just use the navigation tree
on the left side to locate the needed folder.

Use the ‘Upload’ button to upload your files.

*Note, your files should be zipped before
uploading.

zip using winrar The file has been uploaded. Now you can unarchive (unzip) it, using the ‘extract’ option, built in your Hosting Control Panel.

All the files have been successfully extracted.
upload your database the phpmyadmin if any


Your new hosting company should be able to help you to move your files.
