    How do I Perform Website Migration?

    Does there any way to migrate a live website from one server to another server without using the backup?

    Generally you need to take a copy of the files as well as any databases and upload them to the new server. Depending on the nature of the site, you may need to place the site on the old server in maintenance mode in order to ensure that no changes are made whilst copying everything over and waiting for DNS to update.

    If you aren't confident in how to do this, then it would be worth checking with your host to see if they offer a migration service which you can use where they take care of everything for you.

    Do you use any hosting control panel? You can transfer all the data on the new servers and update the DNS in off peak hours.
