I have been using IPS Cloud Hosted since 2012. While I am satisfied with the service, I am paying U$70 a month just to use a Forum (I don't use any other plugin)... with 2-3 months payment I can buy a license to host the forum on a much cheaper place.
My question is: Is it easy to do? Is it usually a smooth change? Does IPS offer this kind of migration service?
To give you a background on my knowledge, I am the IT guy of a service provider, but while I can do anything related to infrastructure (routers, servers, etc) and have little knowledge on SQL and PHP.
EDIT: I already ran the tool to test if my server is suitable to run IPS.
I believe IPS will give you a backup of the site, and the rest is with you.
If you don't have knowledge of configuring a web server, better to hire someone that can do it.
You just need the sql and files backup and you can move to any host
I think I'll buy the license, make a test coying the sql and files, and if everything goes as planned, I'll change de DNS. If something goes wrong, I'll probably pay for someone to do it for me.
Thanks for the tips.
Hey @Rafael Grecco,
what's the end of the story - did you migrate to another host? Which hosting provider did you choose?
