Planning to migrate


I need to migrate a website (domain and application) My Site:

I’m not sure but I think it’s hosted in digital Ocean (reseller, maybe?) Info from hosting checker:

It is hosted by: DigitalOcean, LLC
WHOIS information: Click here
Organization name: DigitalOcean, LLC
AS(autonomous system) number and organization: AS14061 DigitalOcean, LLC
Reverse DNS of the IP:
City: Santa Clara
Country: United States

What I want to know is: in case the current hosting is digital Ocean, what options do I have to be in a space with full control (currently I had no access to chron jobs config and we are running out of storage space) and what steps would be needed to make the migration?

So, how can I confirm my current hosting provider? Would it be easier make the migration process in case it is digital Ocean the current provider?

Any ideas, suggestions or whatever that helps?

Thanks in advance…

P.S: My current provider doesn’t answer my emails/calls anymore :(

Hi @61730165937d-4d0c-b111-d3cdf7,

At the moment, I can see your Website is pointing to a DigitalOcean Droplet. If you are using DigitalOcean on your own, you should have root access meaning you have full access to your Droplet and what’s happening to it. Now, if you are using a hosting company that provides Droplets from DigitalOcean, you’ll indeed need to contact them and ask them to give you full permissions.

Otherwise, what you can do is migrate your Data to a Droplet with DigitalOcean. You first need to install MySQL, Apache/Nginx, PHP and any other services your App might need. Once you have those, you’ll need to migrate both your Website data and your MySQL. You can do that using Filezilla for instance:
