    Hi guys,

    I’m familiar with WP and BP but know hardly anything about servers.

    Here’s my dilemma.
    I want to help a friend out by setting her up a new WP and potentially BP site.

    She currently has a really old site which I have FTP details for but I don’t know who hosts it and it doesn’t appear to have C Panel access.
    The domain is a .co.uk domain

    I could install WP and BP manually through FTP but I know nothing about managing email accounts.
    The email account is currently a .co.uk domain as is the site.

    If I was to buy new hosting and go with the same site name but a .com name and forwarded the .co.uk name to the .com address how would I manage the .co.uk mail?

    Is it done at a domain level or handled by the server where her site is hosted?

    Obviously she needs to keep her .co.uk email address for existing clients. Could I somehow forward it to the new.com address?

    really sorry to sound so simple. I usually use C Panel to manage email and software installs.

    If someone could guide me through how to manage all this that would be great.

    Thanks so much for your time.

    :)
