Moving Websites

This will be the first time I've considered changing hosting, since I've had a well developed website.

So far I have saved all of my files to my computer (including my sql files) - well it's in the process now, as my back up is a few days old. I have gone to my name server and changed the nameserver DNS and am waiting for that to kick in so I can access the cPanel.

The plan is to upload the sql files first and then the main files and then keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't all get broken. I am thinking that I should have applied for a subdomain and then parked my name on it, but I've done it now, so it's on the go!

Does anyone who knows more than me have any advice they can give me to keep an eye out for?

If you have cPanel with the other (old) host as well, you can ask the staff of Gigalicous to move it for you.
Its an automated proces and there is a smaller change that you loose any files.
The only things that the staff here need are your cPanel login details of your old host.

Before the DNS changes (or at least you see it) find the IP and full path directory of your former host. In this way you will be able to fetch and download any content that you have not put or copy in its new place. If the DNS is prior to change you may do the same thing with the new host: IP and full dir path to upload content from former host.
