Switching to a new web host from your existing hosting provider can be a lot easier if you are aware of the best ways to do it.
Switch to a New Host, Manually
You need to sign up with a new web host before you can migrate your site. Choose your new web host after considering on your website traffic demands, and scripting and special software needs. Choose a hosting service that offers a server uptime of 99% or above.
The next step is to move your entire website to the new host. You can do so by manually transferring all website files, databases and email accounts to the new platform.
Moving a static website is easier. Moving a dynamic website is complex as it involves exporting and importing databases, and installing CMS on the new host before importing databases in case you are using platforms such as WordPress.
Transferring email accounts is difficult for both types of websites. Email accounts can be hosted on a third-party platform such as Microsoft 365, a domain registrar or on a hosting service. You need to choose the right transfer process depending on how your email accounts are currently being hosted.
Migration ends with a final check of the website on the new host. Entire website content, navigation and links need to be checked thoroughly and repaired if necessary, to ensure an excellent website experience for visitors.
