Uploading files (ofc into the correct directories) is not enough in that case. If you are Wordpress based you need to transfer the database of that Wordpress instance (mostly MySQL). Usually you do a database dump (using WP maintenance or phpMyAdmin) at the old place and restore the database at the new one. Please note that the hosting has to support PHP/MySQL for hosting Wordpress.

Hey Farooqmaahir

As Boco mentioned you also need to move the DB.

You can change your local host file to see if your new site is working properly before you change your DNS.
It is located in: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
Then the visitors will not see a down-site, and you can check i faster then waiting for the DNS zone to update.
Best regards
