Move Your Website

  • Choosing your new web hosting company.
  • Use the migration capability of your new webhost and follow their directions.
  • Note
    • Make certain that you choose the right host.
    • The host that you were on had multiple cores, multiple gigabytes of memory, and 4x the amount of storage space available.


  • You want to make certain you have a solid working backup on your system.
  • Also, don't forget to test a restore monthly so that you know everything is working in the backup process.

Website Plugins

  • There is a plugin called WP SMTP on your website that defines how outbound email is sent/forwarded to you. You will need to modify this so that your email will be delivered successfully.
  •  Remove the WP Main plugin as this is one of the ways we monitored your website 24x7

Move Your Domain

Move Your Email

  • You will need to recreate all of your email addresses and associated aliases.
  • Once these are created you will log into each one and do an email migration.
  • This is handled by your new mail server company.
  • As with your website make certain they are backing this information up for you and see about what the restore process is.
  • In most cases, this is an email asking for a specific mailbox to be restored.

Users & Passwords

  • Once you are near done it is recommended to verify all users that have access and remove access from accounts that are no longer needed.
  • We recommend creating all new passwords. Although we will be erasing everything from our systems it's always good to start out fresh and secure.


  • If you have any questions let us know and we will be able to help point you in the right direction for your domain.
