Order Loopia web hosting

Order Loopia web hosting

Start by ordering one of our hosting packages that suits you best. Select that you already have a domain and enter your existing domain name (the address of your website without the www). Please note that your current website will not stop working because of this, since no traffic is redirected when ordering a hosting package.

Move your website

Move your website

HTML page:

If you have a standard HTML page, download a copy of your website from your current provider, usually using an FTP program. Then upload the copy to your Loopia account via FTP.

Blog:

If you have a blog at another provider today (such as WordPress.com, Blogg.se or Blogger), you can easily move that one as well to Loopia.

Database:

If you have a MySQL database at your current provider (eg WordPress is powered with a database), you can transfer it to us with help from the program MySQL-Workbench.

You can also request a copy of your database from your current provider and import it into your Loopia account directly via phpMyAdmin in your customer zone.

 

Test your website

Test your website

When the transfer of your website is complete, check that everything is in place and functioning properly. To test that everything is okay before you redirect traffic to Loopia you can enter the address http://yourdomain.se.loopiadns.com (where you replace yourdomain.se to your domain name).

Note that some systems, such as WordPress and Joomla requires you to make minor changes on the website for it to work when you test it. You will then restore these changes when traffic is redirected to Loopia.
