  • Change Board URL and cookie domain in ACP to match the new domain
  • Back up your database and files
  • Upload files to new host, make same files/folders writable as you had before
  • Create database on new host and import backup
  • Edit new database details into ./inc/config.php
Site should then continue as normal.

If you're able to, you could then set up a redirect from the old domain to the new.
