In order to fully takeover a site, we need to move it to Angry Creative hosting. That process – of moving the website and related services from one infrastructure to another is what we call ‘migration’.

How do migrations fit in?

Migration process

Migrations are very involved and important to get right! Every migration is individual but here’s a decent overview of the process so you can see what’s involved! Not all migrations need this degree of detail.

  1. Preparation

    • Conduct an audit
    • Complete standardisation
    • Arrange access to critical systems
    • Create a test plan
    • Create/review documentation around technical architecture and devops
    • Create a comms plan for internal and external users
  2. Trial migration

    • Run a trial migration
    • Run test plan and review issues
    • Review production migration plan
  3. Production migration

    • Content freeze
    • Execute comms plan
    • Run migration
    • Test using spoofed DNS
    • Update DNS & implement SSL
    • Post-migration testing
    • Update documentation
