Migrating a hosting from a Cloud Server to a shared hosting is an operation that must be performed manually. Please follow this guide.
A Cloud Server offers several advantages compared to Web hosting:
- flexible resources entirely dedicated to your projects
- 5 hostings and 25 base websites
- more libraries available for your developments
- The names of the databases and the database users are saved
- FTP accounts are saved with the same names but the host server is changed for an "xxxx.ftp.infomaniak.com" type address (find out more)
- Sites IPs will change, except for dedicated IP addresses
- The service will be interrupted during the migration process
