I am creating a new web site with Kompozer. We have an existing site in which we wish to keep the domain name but not the site itself. The site is currently written by a third party and obsolete. We want to use the new site created in Kompozer which we write. How can I do this?

Thank you for your question gstepp!

You can set your Kompozer program to publish using FTP on our server. Please see the following link on this.

<a href="">Publishing your website using KompoZer</a>

After you have your website uploaded you can view it with your temp url.

<a href="">Testing your website using your Temporary URL</a>

Once you confirm your site is working on your server with us, you can point your domain to our nameservers.

<a href="">Updating your domain's dns / nameservers</a>

If you want to renew the domain with us you will need to transfer the domain. Otherwise you can keep the domain with your current registrar.

<a href="">Domain Names - Registrar Transfer versus NameServer Change</a>
