Note: 100% web hosting beginner here but I want to learn.

So… I just subscribed to a VPS hosting and am currently in the process of migrating my WordPress websites over.

FILES

  • Downloaded my websites files from the old hosts
  • Upload them into the file manager of the new host

DATABASES

  • Exported my website database from old hosts
  • Imported those database into the new host
  • Edited wp-config to match with the current database information

DOMAINS

  • In my domain registrar (GoDaddy and Namecheap), I switched out my old hosts nameserver to the new one.
  • GoDaddy allows me to add a host name which allows me to bind my new nameserver with the IP address of the new host
  • Namecheap on the other hand doesn’t allow this. I think there is a problem here which I will need to get in contact with Namecheap on this.

What other things did I miss out to complete the migration?
