      Your IT staff. If you don’t have such then you contract out the work.

      But I would be remiss if I don’t ask if you maintain backup copies of data you can’t lose?

      In short, no backups = no data.

      Start defining what “all data” is. Like:
      – all product data (price, stock, …)
      – all customer data (name, address, contact person, … )
      – all sales data back to 2017
      – all complaints back to 2017
      – all marketing data back to 2017 (what mails sent to whom)
      or maybe less, or maybe more.

      Then get the data model of your store in nopCommerce and the data model in your Shopify shop, and define the mapping from old to new.

      Then find out how to get the needed data out of your old shop.

      Then find out how to put the needed data into your new shop.

      Then make the necessary programs.

      Then thoroughly test them.

      Then, when all is fine, close your old shop, move over and open your new shop. The url of the old shop should get a permanent redirect to the new shop.

      Website migration can be a complex process, but with careful planning and execution, it can be done smoothly. Follow these steps to migrate your website successfully:

      Backup Your Current Website: Before you start any migration, it’s crucial to create a complete backup of your current website. This ensures that you have a copy of all your files, databases, and configurations in case anything goes wrong during the migration.

      Choose the New Hosting Provider: Select a new hosting provider that best suits your needs. Consider factors like server location, storage capacity, bandwidth, support, and pricing.

      Set Up the New Hosting Account: Create an account with the new hosting provider and configure the server environment. Ensure it matches the requirements of your website’s platform (e.g., PHP version, database support).

      Transfer Files and Databases: There are several ways to transfer your website’s files and databases. You can use FTP (File Transfer Protocol) for files and tools like phpMyAdmin for databases. Alternatively, your new hosting provider may offer a migration service to assist you.

      Update DNS Settings: After your website’s data is migrated to the new server, update your domain’s DNS (Domain Name System) settings. Point your domain to the new hosting provider’s nameservers.

      Check Website Functionality: Once the DNS changes propagate (which may take some time), access your website using the domain name to ensure it’s working correctly on the new server. Check all the pages, links, forms, and functionalities.

      Test and Troubleshoot: Thoroughly test your website on the new server to identify any issues that may have occurred during migration. Check for broken links, missing images, and any other anomalies.

      Update Configurations: If your website relies on any specific configurations (e.g., PHP settings, .htaccess), make sure they are properly configured on the new server.

      Update Email Settings: If your website’s email accounts are hosted on the same server, ensure that you configure email settings correctly on the new server to avoid disruption in email services.

      Update External Services: If your website uses third-party services (e.g., payment gateways, APIs), update the settings with the new server’s details if required.

      Monitor Traffic and Errors: Keep a close eye on your website’s traffic and error logs after the migration to catch any issues that may arise post-migration.
