The purpose of this posting to ask for any advice or hints readers might have in transitioning to another web host provider that will minimise any down-time for my small-business website (I manage my own website) and also the receiving of e-mails.
My existing and new provider both use CPanel, which I have a basic understanding of.
Should I set up my web site with the new provider a few days befoire my contract with the old provider expires?
Is the transition a straight-forward process, or are there traps and horror stories out there?
My first concern will be to avoid losing any incoming e-mails.
All advice welcome!
