    Transferring an existing website

    I just started a free 30 trial account with godaddy. It looks like you have to use their Website Builder to build a website from scratch.

     

    I already have a website. I am looking for a new place to put it. I want to be able to upload the existing html files from my computer. I need to be able to create folders and have links to the pages in them from within the homepage.

     

    I don't see any method to do this. Does the paid account work the same way as the free trial or some features disabled? Do you have to use their website builder?

    Absolutely not! It sounds like what you need is most likely a Linux cPanel shared server. If it's a standard HTML site, that will do everything you need. 

     

    Just cancel the 30 day free trial and go here to purchase some shared hosting. If you get a lot of traffic currently, I would recommend Business Hosting.
