If you did not select the option to move your sites and users to the VPS when ordering, you can still move them at a later time.
Migrating your sites and users
When you add a second VPS, you won’t be able to automatically move data from an existing VPS to the new VPS. However, you can migrate your users and domains after the VPS is provisioned using these instructions.
- Navigate to the VPS page.
- Above the Add VPS button, click the link titled
- Select the desired VPS from the dropdown menu.
- Click the Move all shared users and domains button.
Your users and domains are then migrated over to your chosen VPS.
Make sure the VPS has enough space to migrate all of your users and domains. If there is insufficient space on the VPS, the migration fails and you may not be able to log in to the private server.
You can check how much space you need by looking at the "Disk Usage" value on the FTP Users & Files page. Click the Show Info button next to your user to display. The Disk Usage value displays below the user.
You can only move all users (and their domains) or none at all. You cannot move a single user at a time to a VPS.
To move a single domain at a time from a shared server to a VPS, see the following article:
What happens to email?
Moving a website user and domain to a new server does not affect email. This is because email is on a completely different mail server. Your email will continue to function normally.
