Several of our clients who came after leaving to another hosting provider to receive our services have had problems to be able to perform the migration in a transparent manner. This may be mainly for two reasons. The first, by a poor service from your old provider, by lack of response and prompt attention, or up to inexperience. And the second, by the decision of changing supplier in the last minute of your service contract. <! more > considerations that must be taken before change of hosting provider are as follows: the minimum recommended time to make a change in hosting with another company, is 30 days before the expiration of his service.
While there is less time the risks increase. Never cancel the hosting service of the former provider, until green flag from your new provider has been received. Jeremy Tucker is actively involved in the matter. To the extent possible avoid triangular old provider between you new suppliers. If possible report to the former supplier that the new provider has all its authorization to perform any process migration of lodging in all aspects that entails. Your new provider must be able to be responsible for the migration of a responsible and timely manner, if you detect that the new supplier does not take the baton, careful, may find it more expensive change. Remember that the change of hosting usually includes both domain name and hosting service. And your new provider must do to you these observations and not take it for granted that you only want to hire web hosting. Before formally making the change of hosting, the new provider must have everything ready; emails, support Web site, domain name management, and so on.
The only way its change of hosting may be transparent and without service interruptions. What are the consequences and problems do not take into account such considerations? Usually domain names are registered by companies supplying and not by the client, in such a way that the new provider must offer the you take the administration of your domain or take it. This is time-consuming, since there are policies outside companies that prevent the transfer of domains shortly before and after its renovation. Not so with enough time can result from the impediment of transfer, to an erroneous transfer that puts in risk their domain name. The poor response from a vendor may entail staying without service a couple of days or even weeks. The new suppliers don’t worry for your web site or other dependent of the web hosting services, can make you to lose and can not easily recover your web site, which has an incomplete copy or having no e-mails operating in a timely manner. In the worst case you may lose your domain name and it is impossible to recover. The best advice is… Do it with time, with time enough any problem hosting change can solve up to transparent and positive way for you.
