The 5 Steps to Transfer Your Web Page Hosting Provider to Another

web hosting
On numerous occasions, when we have made a decision about which web hosting provider we wanted, we were at the crossroads of other better opportunities than we had not considered. The worst is when we have already paid the first year of service with a company that is below the best options, and it is too late to do something about it.

If you've already made the mistake of choosing the wrong provider, don't be alarmed. It is convenient for you to maximize the payment and wait for your annual contract is due to expire. Meanwhile, research and look for other web hosting companies that offer you better options and quality in hosting your site.

Once you've chosen the new company, you must start the process by changing the names of the servers. In this case the server that is already registered is the outgoing (Primary DNS) and the new will be called the incoming server (secondary DNS). And if you intend to prevent falls of the page for the virtual removal process, it is recommended that the two servers "overlap" each other, especially in the first three days, to be sure that the movement was executed the in the best possible way.

The five most important steps to ensure that transfer between servers in a web site is carried out in harmony are the following:

   1. Do not cancel the account with the first hosting company, it must first close the deal with that we will provide the new service before you even think to tell them about the settlement of our contract with our current supplier.
   2. Try to install all the email accounts and upload the documents from the website right after you hire the new service to make sure everything is working properly.
   3. Once all the accounts and the website are installed, proceed to the remark that I indicated above, that is, you do the DNS change, the outgoing and incoming domains respectively.
   4. After making the DNS change, lets spend 24 hours to carry out each of the new specifications on the network. Note that it may not be enough, maybe you should wait 72 hours to be made in full.
   5. Only after this period has been completed and you have verified that there are not problems of transfer, then you have the assurance that you can notify your old hosting company about you switching to another and you can work with the new domain.
