Website Development - Webpage Migration
Webpage Migration is a process of moving a webpage from one host to another. This process is done for various reasons, some of which are −
You are not satisfied anymore with the support of the Hosting Company
Prices are cheaper to another hosting
Your actual hosting plan doesn’t fulfill your needs anymore
Technology offered is not competitive anymore, etc.
As migration is a process, the following steps are needed to complete it in a minimal downtime of your webpage.
We must fully backup our webpage as discussed in the previous chapters.
Upload the backup file in the new hosting.
Unzip files in the Public folder.
Import the database file.
Configure files with the credentials of the new database.
Point your new domain name servers with your current registrar and wait for the new records to be propagated.
