Finding a reliable web hosting provider is an advantage in its own self. However, at times, we may need to migrate our website away from a given web host and head towards a new hosting space.
The reasons for such migration might vary. For example, our website may have outgrown the current web hosting plan’s capacity, or the current web host might just be taken over by EIG (yes, that happens a lot) and we’d be better off hosting our stuff elsewhere. Similarly, the need for better quality support or the ability to run a given script (say, we now need a host that supports FFMPEG encoding) are some valid reasons why we need to migrate our website away from its existing hosting provider.
In such cases, are there any specific considerations that we must bear in mind? Is there a handy checklist that we can adhere to when attempting to migrate our website to a new web hosting provider? In this article, we will be discussing the answer to these questions.
