Hosting Migration

What is it?

A hosting migration is the process of moving a website off of one server and on to another. During this process all files are stransfered, the site is reviewed to confirm no functionality breaks in the process, security items such as SSL certificates and firewalls are transferred, and all domains are redirected to point visitors to the new location.


Why should you care?

Not all hosting providers are created equal and there may come a time when you need to change. Depending on the complexity of your site and the quality of your new host the process can be relatively painless or fairly complex. It’s important to insure that all files are moved over and properly configured so the integrity of your site is not jeopardized during this process.
