I'm planning to change host. There are no problems with domain name ownership, etc but I'd like to know what sort of transient problems I'm likely to encounter. In particular, I'm concerned about emails going astray.
My current host is in the UK, I plan to move to a host in the US. I sell software so my site is in no way UK-specific.
Hi it's hard to say exactly as it depends on a number of things. Just check with your new host that they will be able to support any features that you may need. Example, if your products are downloadable make sure they have the necessary server compontents to permit downloading and your downloads can be stored in a safe non-browsable location on the server. Check to find out if you are responsible for the changing of MX records for email. Setup the email boxes prior to switching. Test everything before changing the dns.
