It’s a common scenario: You create a website for your business and choose a Web hosting company that promises to meet your needs for space, bandwidth and customer service, but over time, you become increasingly frustrated as your business Web hosting company fails to meet your needs.
Just like a family that’s outgrown its starter home, your business now needs a new Web hosting company to call home so you end up looking for a new replacement web hosting company. That is where we step in, our web hosting service look to provider much greater value for money than most traditional web hosting packages.
We have combined the web hosting with all of the other required ongoing services required by a website owner, that often costs lots of additional payment to your web designer and put them all in to an easy to manage, affordable monthly hosting, support and updates package for just £33 per month.
- Gone is the paying separately for additional email address and accounts.
- Gone is paying for a separate support contract.
- Gone is the paying separately for security.
- Gone is the paying separately, unexpectedly and extortionately for alterations, updates and new content etc.
Have all of the above taken care of in just one monthly hosting, security and unlimited support and updates fee of just £33 per month.
You may be reluctant to make the move to a new Web hosting provider, as you anticipate the headaches that lie ahead – especially costly Web hosting downtime. Luckily, you don’t have to feel stuck with a Web hosting provider that is not meeting your needs as we can make the switching web hosting providers process much easier for you. Here is a standard 7 step plan for changing your web hosting with how we can help do this for you.
By following this 7-step switching your web hosting plan – for changing your business Web hosting company, you can move your website with minimal downtime and disruption and start benefiting from the new all in one web services package almost immediately.
7 step changing your web hosting plan:
#1: Back-up your website
When you switch to a new Web hosting company, the possibility of problems always exists. Give yourself a safety net by backing up your website. To do this, use your chosen Web development tool (such as Frontpage®) to download all current files used in your website – graphics, HTML files, etc – to a local computer (or let us know and we can do this for you).
#2: Record important information
Do not just rely on your memory when changing to a new Web hosting provider – take the time to record important information that you will need when you make the move. This includes details such as security settings, email boxes and software and configuration information etc. (Or let us know and we can do it all for you).
#3: Select a new Web hosting provider
Want to make sure you never have to change your business Web hosting company again? Take your time selecting a Web hosting provider that can meet your needs now – and in the event of future growth. Look for a Web hosting company with an uptime guarantee, and make sure that their server can support everything that you are running on your site.
Or let us know and we can become your web hosting provider we can create an account for you – but don’t close your old web hosting account or end your web design support contract just yet.
#4: Alert your visitors
Changing to a new Web hosting provider doesn’t just affect you, but your visitors as well. This is especially true for ecommerce websites whose visitors may panic upon not being able to find a website from which they recently placed a purchase. By giving visitors prior warning – and perhaps alternate contact information – you can ease the transition. (We can switch your hosting seamlessly so they shouldn’t notice a thing).
#5: Load your site
It’s best to load your website with your new Web hosting company before dealing with your domain name change. You can do this by loading all your site’s files to the IP address provided by the Web hosting company. (We will do this for you).
#6: Change your domain name record
Update your domain name information with the name server information of your new Web hosting company. If your business Web hosting company is also your domain name registrar, this will be very simple. However, if your domain name is registered elsewhere—or you are not registered as the administrative contact – it will require more effort. Once a change has been initiated, it will take up to 2 days for domain propagation to take place – or, in simpler terms, for DNS servers across the Web to “get the message” that your website now lives on a different server (we will do this for you).
#7: Cancel Your Account
Once the domain name propagation period has passed, you can test for issues and — once you feel confident that everything is in place — close your account with your old Web hosting provider (we will do this for you).
While changing your Web hosting provider requires planning, it doesn’t have to be stressful, especially with us as we’ll do it all for you.
We can also make things much easier for you ongoing by providing you with a much better and more comprehensive hosting, security and support service.
