It really shouldn’t be difficult to move to a new hosting provider, even if you’ve got hundreds of websites on your books. The vast majority of providers now offer a free migration service, and it’s a real must if you want to make the process as stress-free as possible.
But, as with all things, the level of service you get can really vary. Look for a company that offers free, managed migrations, with a real, live person to support you. While a lot of companies say they offer managed migrations, what they really mean is they’ll hook you up with a migration tool. Yes, it might help a bit, but it’s not going to pick up the phone if you’re getting flustered.
At Nimbus, we allocate you a member of our support team who’ll take you through the migration from start to finish, manually moving all your files and databases, updating DNS records and checking your sites are working properly before asking you to give them a final check through. Better than a bot, right?
