How to migrate E-commerce live website to AWS from HostGator shared hosting.


Need guidance regarding most common issues while migrating, and things to take care of

There are a lot of variables when it comes to migrating a website from a shared host to AWS. Unfortunately you haven't shared enough information to help with a guiding response.

In the future, it would be good to share:

  • What ecommerce platform are you using?
  • How many daily page views does your site get?
  • How much management do you want in the infrastructure? There are some managed services that will take away a lot of the manual work of implementation.
  • Are you experienced with AWS?

I would recommend to use your favorite search engine to look up: "(your ecommerce platform) on AWS". There will most likely be plenty of blogs and tutorials on which AWS services are right for the platform you're utilizing and how to set it up on AWS.

Alternatively there are AWS Partners, independent companies, and freelancers who you could set up an engagement with to assist with the migration.
