I am changing one of my websites from instant pro as its all a bit beyond me now, I am going to use a local designer but still wish to host my website with freeola if I can

How do I go about moving my site from an instant pro website to just a "Hosted" site
regards

No they are doing it all from scratch, so I will sort out the hosting on VIP hosting then ?
We will be keeping our other instant pro sites just moving the main one for now
as always thanks for the help :-)

You can't move it as such. You will need to buy VIP Hosting and then setup your site on that as a completely new site and the copy the content over. It depends on what your designer has in mind as to how this is done but you can't simply convert an InstantPro site to a more traditional hosted site, a bit more work required but doable. If, for example, the designer was to use a CMS such as WordPress, they could set that up on VIP hosting, then copy and paste the text content into new pages. Images are a little trickier as they would need to download them of the InstantPro site individually. Once you are happy with the VIP site you can then cancel your InstantPro subscription.
