I have switched to fatcow web hosting, which is supposed to be one of the best. However, my website is all wrong.
At first it would not come up at all with some kind of error message. When I gave the support team the ripped version that I had put on my computer, they managed to retrieve the text, but only 2% of pictures appeared – (while this service is costing me extra per hour).
They have all my picture files and pages and everything, but they can’t seem to be able to set it up right. Funny thing, when I was signing up with them, they made all kind of promises that both web hosting companies were compatible (and the type of website setup I had), and that it could switch over without seamlessly.
Your problem is that you did not save an EXACT MIRROR of all files and images using the exact same directory structure you had online on the other hosting site. I keep mine on a thumbdrive and only have to upload the entire directory structure to the public_html (root) directory of any new host.
You should be able to do the same using FTP, but only if you have the exact files used. If you did a save Web Page, Complete for your site, then all paths are wrong and many images probably were not picked up.
Obviously, no one has a clue about what the HTML looks like at this point, nor how to fix it. Is your old site still online? If so, the files and images can still be recovered properly.
