I have been trying to move my site hosting from WA to 1and1. I have created a full backup of my site in dropbox. The thing is I can't seem to find an option to upload my site t

Why 1and1? I use and recommend HostGator. I'm an affiliate so if you want to try them out send me a private message.

I used to have an account with 1and1, lasted a week. I can't remember anymore what my gripe was with that place since I've been through a few. Maybe it was their horrible technical support.

But going to your problem, you will have to use FTP to transfer your files, whether you use an actual FTP program (e.g. FileZilla or Tunnelier which is my personal choice because of its simplicity) or some other program that seems to make FTP not part of the process. If you have your site files in your local computer, you can FTP it straight to 1and1, you just need to know which folder to put them in so that WordPress will find them.

Hey Grendall, yes I agree the technical support with 1and1 is pure messy.. The issue is I have no idea which folder to upload my site to to FTP straight to 1and1.. Thanks so much for your advice!

Wow. Didn't know they have a tutorial on their site! Gonna check it back later. Do I change the DNS first or do I upload the site first though?

And loll. I'm trying out their hosting then if it sucks I can cancel the contract within 30 days.

Thanks Jason!

Hi buddy
First....1&1??? Really????
Anyways change your dens back to 1&1 then you'll probably need to wait 2-3 days....1&1 are slow slow slow
Then you'll need to upload via filezila to 1and1 ftp
They have a tutorial on their site specific to 1&1
