How to transfer Joomla Frihost website to another host?

I want to transfer my frihost website (that uses Joomla) to another host.

How would I go about that?

I have transferred wordpress blog from frihost to other host and the process was simple. I guess this process will work for Joomla as well. Follow this process and it should work
1. Download a copy of database to your computer.
2. Create new database on your new host and replace it with the database you have downloaded.
3. Download all files located on public_html at frihost and upload that file to public_html on your new host.
4. Change the database setting for new host. In wordpress the changes were made to wp_config.php but in joomla it might be different.

If you need a detail instruction, follow this URL http://kb.siteground.com/article/How_to_transfer_Joomla_15_from_one_host_to_another.html

You have it hosted with a sub domain or TLD domain ?

If your site is hosted in a TLD domain then it's pretty easy.

1. Take a FTP backup
2. Take a DataBase backup
4. Upload files to new host
5. Import the dataBase into new host
6. Change the config file and add new DB info

Site should start working perfectly.

Lots of paid hosts will actually transfer everything for you if you give them your username and password. It's worth asking if your new host will do that.
