I submitted a help desk ticket to my hosting company, explaining that I have a sub-domain hosted with them that I would like to copy and reinstall to a new domain name that I registered. I asked if I could backup the website to my hard drive, and then reinstall the website to my new domain, and this is their reply:
"Yes. Just FTP the files from that subdomain to your computer. Once the new account is setup then you can FTP it up to your new domain account."
Would this work with a wordpress blog also?
