Moving a website to a new host can be a crucial decision for businesses seeking better performance and reliability. However, several factors need consideration to ensure a smooth transition:

  • Website Speed: Evaluate if the new hosting company improves your website’s speed. Faster loading times can enhance user experience and boost search engine rankings.*
  • Website Structure: Determine if the structure of the website will remain the same after migration. Changes in structure can affect navigation and user engagement.
  • Location of Hosting: Consider if the new hosting company is in the same country as your target audience. Hosting closer to your audience can improve website loading times and overall performance.
  • Domain Change: Decide if you’re changing your domain. If so, implement 301 redirects to direct traffic from old URLs to corresponding pages on the new site. Avoid blanket redirects, as they can harm SEO by diluting page authority.
  • DNS Changes: Ensure that DNS changes are made correctly to prevent downtime and maintain website accessibility.

*Note: I do not recommend hosts such as GoDaddy or any of the Newfold Digital (formerly Endurance International Group “EIG”) hosting companies such as Bluehost, Hostgator, iPage, iPower. I recommend Cloudways.
