It’s been recommended I switch my 30 websites from BlueHost to DigitalOcean. But, I’m just a business owner and marketing guy and have no clue how to setup or manage a server on my own. I’ve Googled “DigitalOcean Consultant,” as well as a few freelancing sites, but can not find any results. Are there any sites you can recommend that I might be able to find someone to help me setup and manage my DigitalOcean account?

<b>“… my 30 websites from BlueHost to DigitalOcean.”</b> <br> <br>Do they happen to be WordPress installations? If so, save yourself the $$$ and check out the <a href=“http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/”>Duplicator</a> plugin; or, this article: <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-migrate-wordpress-from-shared-hosting-to-a-cloud-server-with-zero-downtime”>How to Migrate WordPress from Shared Hosting to a Cloud Server with Zero Downtime</a>. <br> <br>Also, I would highly recommend that you stay far, far away from FTP and only use SFTP when needing to upload files to your web server. For those tasks, arm yourself with <a href=“https://filezilla-project.org/”>FileZilla</a> (and <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-log-into-your-droplet-with-putty-for-windows-users”>PuTTY</a> if working from a Windows machine).

I’ve migrated some of my clients from a reseller account in other provider, to a VPS for hosting and two VPS for DNS, and it’s really good. <br> <br>The Q&A section is a good starting point, and overall DO you can find help. <br> <br>Good look with your search. <br> <br>PS: I’m from Chile, and may be with different timezone… oh and sorry if my english is not so good.

Thanks for the responses. So, if I want to find someone to do the setup and manage my server, as well as consult with me over the phone or Skype on the process, should I ask in the live chat area?
