You don’t really need a website hosting provider in place before you implement host migration. There are a lot of website hosting companies in Malaysia with different configurations. All you need to do is compare and evaluate which package is best suitable for you. Your decision must depend on different components, from the required space and host to server configuration.

b.Move databases, files and email accounts.

Even if you are a beginner, you can easily move static web pages to a new website host. Just download all of your files from the old one, and then upload all of them. Do it according to the old file structure and folder to the new provider. However, moving a dynamic website with a database can take quite a lot of hard work.

3.Troubleshoot and then check all the details.

After loading all files in the new website hosting configuration, don’t forget to double check the details. All of them must work properly.
