I am going to be transferring my self-hosted WordPress blog over to a new host in the next day or two but I had some questions before I begin.
Background: My old host is currently under a DDOS attack. This has made Jetpack, VaultPress and several other things misbehave. Currently, Jetpack is disconnected and I cannot reconnect it.
My blog URL is registered by WordPress.com (where my blog started out before I went self-hosted a year ago.)
Here are my questions:
Is it better to redirect the nameservers of my URL to the new host BEFORE I set up my new WordPress install and transfer my files?
Since I will be using the same domain, do I have anything to worry about regarding loss of subscribers?
Apologies if these are newbie questions. I really do appreciate any help you can offer.
