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.
