I wish someone would of told me that iPage is GARBAGE for hosting lol. Why the hell is it on the top 10 hosting companies. Their servers are SLUGGISHLY slow and I don't even have any content on my site yet other than layout and logo being edited. Since I have to wait 60 for transfer..

Is it possible to --> Start building the site (wordpress) in the meantime then transfer the domain + move to another hosting company later on? Domain is registered in the same place (both iPage). Yeah I know, total newb mistake.

    Yes my friend! There shouldn't be any technical hurdles.

    Say for the next 60 days you customize your wordpress website. This results in two things; database changes and filesystem changes. You can use filezilla to download via FTP the complete website from the file system, and simply use filezilla to upload the same website via FTP to your new host. As for the database, you can use phpmyadmin to export your database. See Tutorial: Exporting MySQL tables and databases with phpMyAdmin.

    Sometimes your new web hosting company even does this for you! If you know what host you are going to move to, I could even provide you with some tailored instructions.

    As for the domain name, see How do I Transfer my Domain from iPage to Another Company?.

    Some other links:
    Can I Transfer My Site Away from iPage?

    Please note that they may be additional costs although these should be relatively small. For example, if you took out your domain/hosting as part of an offer and you wish to transfer within the first year, they will often make you pay for the entire domain.
