Moving To A New Web Host

There may come a time when the decision migrate to a new web host will be made. Maybe the current web hosting isn’t providing adequate enough management or technical support is just not up to scratch. Most web hosting promises support on a 24/7 basis, but not all have the experience to back it up.

So the decision has been made to move, but there are concerns in the camp that problems could occur. One of the issues is the possible change of IP address. If the IP is static then the transition between old and new is relatively hassle free, providing that there are not major concerns about leaving the web site down for a day or two. If the process involves dynamic sites with databases, it can prove to be a little bit more difficult, but it is the same principle.

Firstly, find good web hosting and sign up for an account. Secondly, make a back-up of the site at the new website hosting server by copying over the whole structure. Thirdly, the crucial part involves changing the DNS to point to whichever of the new web hosts has been chosen. After this, it would be a logical step to wait until the DNS change has filtered through the net. If Google is relevant to your plan and they are fetching from the new webhost/IP address, then it’s all been a great success.

We at CWCS provide a range of website hosting packages to suit anyone wishing to change to a new improved system.
