Hi sifus, currently I have a ecommerce site running Magento. Would like to proceed to upgrade to Magento 2 and at the same time, use a different web provider. My knowledge is limited so after doing some research around, I found these to be the steps:

1. Decide on Web Hosting Provider
2. Decide on Magento 2 Theme provider (The theme that came along with Magento 2, I tried but couldn't do anything with it)
3. Decide on what's needed - eg. Installation, data migration of products and customers data, setup, SEO, optimization

I'm wondering if I'm missing anything from there?

Also, while on this topic, if I simply want to make a catalogue (no on-site e-commerce) of my products and link it to Lazada/Shopee, is Magento 2 still a good choice, or would I be better off using a different system?

Thank you so much sifus biggrin.gif

Easy. Make a backup of the database. Migrate to new server provider as you wish.

As I understand it, there's a little bit of work to be done from Magento 1 (M1) to Magento 2 M2). Do you know of any companies that do such transitions in Malaysia? biggrin.gif

Should not be that complicated and should be possible because my company just upgraded their magneto version and all products retained as it is.

I see, thanks for the heads up bro! Did you DIY the upgrade or got someone else to do the update for you?

Backup is one of the most important things and don't forget to have it on a different server. Rest all things are not difficult to perform if you have the basic skills.
