As long as things are done properly there should be no downtime as a result of the move. We suggest following these steps:

  1. Sign up for an account with us.
  2. Upload your website to our servers and test to make sure everything appears as it should.
  3. Update the name servers with your domain registrar to point to the ones we provide in your welcome email.
  4. Wait a couple of days before cancelling your old hosting plan. It can take a couple of days for a domain to transfer and it is best to leave some overlap to ensure there is no downtime.

If you follow these steps the transition will happen smoothly.
