How to migrate 5 Websites from asmall Orange Hosting to Digital Ocean Hosting ?

Posted February 12, 2020 292 views

Hi, Digital Oceans

I am interested in digitaloceans hosting after i saw my friends website having thousands of daily visitors. I am really inspired by your service.

However, i am getting down-time for my existing hosting when visitors increased fastly. So i am planning to migrate all my sites from asmall orange company to your hosting.

I am running VPS for one site and using shared hosting package for remaining 4 websites.

So my main question is that:> can i transfer my VPS to your hosting or i am only able to transfer my shared hosting websites ?

Also do let me know, will your agent will help me to transfer all my site here ? I am not expert to migrate sites.

Looking for someone to help thanks bundles.

A "LAMP" stack is a group of open source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This stack typically consists of the Linux operating system, the Apache web server, a MySQL database, and PHP, a dynamic content processor. This tutorial serves as a guide for installing these components on an Ubuntu 18.04 server.
