    Hi all newbie here at web design:

    I plan on migrating a couple of my clients websites to a new host and wanted to find out the best way to do it. First I know I would have to backup the data/content of the website but am having trouble finding the most efficient way to do it. Also I wanted to know the process of migrating a website host. Would I need to use a program like dreamweaver to make sure it is working before uploading to the new host or will it do it automatically? Any other input will help out thanks!

    All depends on what kind of sites they are.

    If they are static HTML, then you could just use a FTP program, pull a copy from the old host, push a copy to the new host.

    If they are database driven sites, you'll need to backup the database, find out what version of CMS , setup the new CMS , import the db into the new site, move over any custom stuff, etc using the FTP program.

    Without knowing specifics, it's hard to say, but those are the 2 most common scenarios. There's about a dozen more it could be.

    Yeah for static sites, its pretty much as simple as copying your site into a folder and re-uploading to the new host.
