After more than a decade with the same hosting provider, I decided to uproot it all and find another host. Because who doesn’t like the self-inflicted anxiety of migrating years of files, databases and settings over a couple of nights, right?

I got to this stage because I had a cursory look at what other hosting companies were offering and realised I could get better value for money elsewhere. So I took the leap and left my reliable-but-expensive Singapore-based hosting company to try out InMotion. So here are some things I learned over the last two weeks while making the move.
