A Step-By-Step Guide to Changing Web Hosts - Gathering the Odds
(Page 3 of 4 )

  1. A good FTP program which you should have by now
  2. Get your new host serverís DNS
  3. Itís also helpful to have a script that tells you the server environments installed on your new host server for quick references.
  4. Get the temporary URL on your new host so you can check your site before you make a DNS change.
  5. If you have your host control the domain inform them not to change your DNS until you tell them to.
  6. If you run scripts:
    • Get a copy of the original installation guide and the script. Sometimes, after moving, the scripts just do not work right; you might need to install them from scratch.
    • Get a list of all the server paths such as Perl, Sendmail and the home directory on your new server.
    • If your script needs special server modules or programs, ensure they are installed and make note of their location.
