    Hi all

    perhaps someone can help! I have started work for a new company (doing some marketing) and they have an existing website that has a cms in place so that they can amend small parts of the site on a /admin page.

    The person who currently hosts the site has no interest and it would seem it is on a small server. They have said that we can move the hosting to a "proper" hosting company but I have no experience on whether doing this would affect the CMS system or if there are any special things I should be looking out for??

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    Mike

    What CMS ? What server Platform ?

    Is the a DB ? Or is the data stored in flat files ?

    Doesn't really matter, it can be moved as long as you know the answers to the above.

    Appropriate hosting would be the same platform and if there is a DB involved, can you get a copy ?

    Then it's just a matter of setting it up on the new hosting account first, getting the bugs worked out ( using a temporary URL or another domain name ), once everything is working, change your dns pointers, and traffic will start being sent to the new server.

    Most hosting companies provide a free transfer from the previous host.

    Depending on what it is and if they offer the same package.

    I have custom built stuff that no one would touch...
