One of the most asked questions that people have when coming to us is how to change the web hosting provider and is that even possible. The answer is really simple, yes, the change of web hosting provider is possible and sometimes it is even free. Depending on the hosting service that you are trying to move to, they can usually change your provider for free.
The process of changing providers is a little bit more complicated, but if you are working with people that know what are they doing, then you have nothing to worry about. When you are changing the provider for the web host, you shouldn’t experience any change in the structure of your website. Everything should and must look exactly the same, all the functions should work just as before on the previous provider. If you realize that something is not like it used to be or some feature isn’t working, then you should contact the provider and ask him to fix it because it is usually their fault. However, there are almost never any problems with transferring to another web hosting service provider, the process is done very fast. You can experience some changes if you have downgraded or upgraded your hosting service features, such as the bandwidth or storage space.
When changing web hosting providers, there are certain mistakes that you should avoid making because some of them can have serious consequences. The problem is that people never think about these mistakes, they hope that there is nothing to be worried about and that there could be no issues along the way. However, that is not true because a lot of things can go wrong such as losing of crucial files, images or even text. The loss of files can happen when you are downgrading your hosting provider, that means that you are going from a bigger provider to a smaller one that doesn’t offer the equal number of features to you. For example, you can change the provider from one that offers you unlimited storage space to one that offers only 200 GB of storage and if you are having more than 200 GB of files, then you will lose some of them.
