To re-route a website to a different hosting platform, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Choose a new hosting provider: Research and choose a new hosting provider that meets your requirements in terms of server performance, features, and pricing.
  2. Back up your website: Before making any changes, it is important to back up your website files, databases, and any other important data. This will ensure that you have a copy of your website in case anything goes wrong during the re-routing process.
  3. Transfer your website files: After signing up with the new hosting provider, you will need to transfer your website files to the new server. This can be done using an FTP client or through a file manager provided by your hosting provider.
  4. Transfer your database: If your website relies on a database (such as MySQL), you will need to export your database from the old hosting platform and import it into the new hosting platform. This can usually be done using phpMyAdmin or a similar tool provided by your hosting provider.
  5. Update your domain's DNS settings: The final step is to update your domain's DNS settings to point to the new hosting platform. This involves changing the nameservers or adding DNS records provided by your new hosting provider.
  6. Wait for DNS propagation: It may take some time for the DNS changes to propagate across the internet, so be patient and wait for the changes to take effect.


By following these steps, you can successfully re-route your website to a different hosting platform. If you are not comfortable with making these changes yourself, you may consider seeking assistance from a web developer or hosting provider.
