Hi, I had a nice site up and running on godaddy but have been unhappy about the expense there and the lack of flexibility in some areas - So, I switched to Hostgator. I was told by Hostgator support that my site should transfer fine in its entirety - site, blog and store. Well, that didn't happen. I built my site with godaddy propriety software website tonight, quickblogcast and quickshopping cart - none of which will transfer to Hostgator. I was smart enough to copy all of my text, product codes, prices in and out, sizes, colors, etc onto notepad documents (so as not to run into any word document issues if I had to rebuild).
Here is my question. Which site builder do I pick to build a site on Hostgator? Which shopping cart? Which blog software? I own both Dreamweaver and Frontpage but have never figured either one of them out. I am used to point and click web design. Is there such a program on Hostgator (one with templates I can modify?) and which Hostgator programs do I marry together to rebuild my store?
Every day that goes by my site is down. Should I reregister with search engines, directories, blog directories, etc all over again?
I'm sort of in a pickle. Advice appreciated....
