Things to remember while switching to another web hostPosted on October 19, 2007 in Hosting Business, General | |
If you wish to shift from one web host to another one, you need to follow a number of tracks so that you don?t face any difficulty.
Some tips are discussed here, so that you can guide yourself properly and can shun the potentials pitfalls. Firstly, you should check whether the new web hosting plan can provide you with more storage capabilities or not. If your present website is of 50mb you need to go for a new one that can provide the same or more than what the existing one provides with. Secondly, you should check how your existing web host decides your storage amount used for. You should find out what your present new host comprises of in your plan?s storage amount. Along with this you should also see whether your new web host has the storage capacity e mails and log files or only the web files are counted.
In addition, you should see on what operating system your existing hosting plan uses as if your existing hosting plan is on Windows and your new hosting plan is on UNIX, then it will be a great complexity for you to work on UNIX as ASP is a Windows based programming language. With this you should also see whether you will have a Windows or UNIX server and your new host chains your current Front page or not.
Additionally, you should also see that your new host can provide you with the same amount of bandwidth as your existing host is supplying you with and can provide you with the same amount of e mail accounts, auto responders and mail forwards or not. And with this your new host should support you with your existing script if any. So, these are some of the tracks that you should follow while shifting to a new web host.
