Okay, we have had a web co for the last few years that was fine, until they were recently bought out (with no notice to us). Now I am being charged higher fees than negotiated before and am worried about the future of our site. The other problem is, I don't know that we can afford to switch it all over. We just updated a few features in hopes to add some cheaper upgrades for the time being...and now a month later this happens.
Right now this company hosts our site, does design and content, and we have admin rights to make ahcnges. How does a switch work? Do we keep the content and ask someone else to host? Or is the content the property of the developer? Any ideas on how to save my content in case they do keep it (without copying and pasting)?
any recomendations on the best process for switching over to another company, what type of company I should be looking for, etc would be greatly appreciated. THANKS! email@example.com
