  • Migration from shared hosting to VPS hosting

    Hello friends,

    I am not experienced with hosting. I am thinking to migrate my website from shared to VPS hosting or dedicated hosting.
    Which one is better in comparison? VPS or dedicated hosting?
    How can I transfer my domain without losing my any data (web pages and MySQL database)?

    Hi Gabrel,

    The option between VPS and dedicated hosting depends upon requirement of your website as well as the budget you have. I would like to suggest VPS hosting because itís affordable solution for you.

    Regarding the migration, when you choose to update your account our support team will migrate your data to the new server and ensure everything working, so you don't need to be worried about the actual data transfer.

      It all depends on the your requirements and the budget. If you are okay with the resources offered on VPS then you may start with it as it would be a cheaper option when compared to a dedicated server.
      Your webhost should assist you with the server setup and the data transfer. Please be inform that you will need to update the DNS since IPs will get changed while upgrading from shared to VPS or Dedicated server.

        Hello Gabrel,

        Thank you for writing in,

        It seems that your business is expanding and you are making a right decision by upgrading the hosting plan which will surely get enhanced once upgraded on VPS or dedicated server. Now talking about the difference between both the servers VPS and Dedicated I'd say both are best options to consider depending upon the amount of resources you wish to have and the budget as my colleagues informed you in earlier thread. However adding up a little more information to it:

        A VPS server creates a virtual machine within your host server and this virtual machine is also called as container, and is created on a physical server with other Virtual Machines.. Now considering a VPS you will be sharing the CPU with some other sites, but the RAM and Disk Space will be all your own. VPS is an Excellent choice if you have outgrown from shared hosting, but dont have the budget for a dedicated hosting server. Generally, this is the choice for high-traffic websites with large budgets.

        Dedicated hosting, also referred to as a dedicated server, means you lease a physical server. You donít share resources like RAM, a CPU, or disk space with anyone else. You have complete access to the dedicated server so you can control what software you install and run, including the operating system (OS).

        You can simply initiate a Live Chat from our website if any instant help needed or any query to be addressed.

        Thanks and Regards,

          Hello Gabrel,

          I forgot to mention the domain migration process in my last post which now am not able to edit as well, so thought of posting another thread.
          Gabreal, I'd like to inform you that if you have the control panel on your new servers same as the one on your old shared hosting our technical support team will completely take care of the data migration process for you. We will keep both the server live until the migration is completed and you confirm everything is working fine on the new server. The time required for the data migration will depend upon the size of the data and we can schedule the data migration as per the best time suitable to you. Everything you have on your old serer including MySQL database, webpages, files, etc will be moved entirely on the new server safely. you might only need to face DNS Propagation while updating Nameservers.

          Kindly initiate a Live chat from our website for better assistance once you are ready to proceed with the upgrade.

          Thanks and Regards,
          EdwardS
