Website Migration

Start fresh with a New Host

Website migration is the process of moving an entire site from one provider (or host) to another. There are a wide variety of web hosting providers on the market today, and each offers a unique value and menu of services. When you’re ready to start fresh and switch to a new provider, Custom Software Solutions can manage the process from start to finish.

Migrating your website requires going through several important steps: picking a new provider, backing up all necessary website information, transferring the data to the new provider, troubleshooting the new database, and switching over the domain name. Website migration often uses File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, services to transfer files from one network to another.

The website migration experts at Custom Software Solutions will work with you to identify the perfect web provider for your website, then develop a plan to migrate the site seamlessly. Our goal is to minimize disruption to your web traffic, strategically planning your migration for as little downtime as possible. Custom Software Solutions is here to guide you through the migration process so you can take advantage of everything your web host has to offer.
