Goran Nikolovski recently shared insights on the cost-effective transfer of a Drupal site from an expensive hosting provider to a more affordable option, reducing costs from $240 to $5.99 per month. The transition was necessary due to high costs and the old hosting provider's use of an outdated Linux version. 

Goran manually transferred the site files and database using SSH and rsync, as the site was not in Git and lacked a CI pipeline. He plans to implement Git and GitLab CI for future efficiency. Despite reducing storage space from 300GB to 200GB, the new hosting provided sufficient resources, maintaining the site's performance. Goran emphasized that not all Drupal sites require costly hosting solutions, advocating for tailored evaluations to determine appropriate hosting types.
