Transfer multiple Wordpress + domains
Posted August 3, 20136.1k views
Hi I'm considering moving my whole server from Bluehost to DO.
I just get too much downtime and their speeds don't reflects their claims!!
Obviously I have multiple domains and each hosting a Wordpress site + emails.
What package would you recommend for 6-7 light traffic wordpress blogs.
I'd require the ability to create FTP accounts for each domain.
I'm not too savvy with Terminal but I'm more than willing to learn as I've done a a bit of playing around with it.
If you could point me in the right directions to tutorials as to which would be the best server to use and things like phpMyadmin and all the other bits I will require.
I did the move from shared hosting to VPS about 7 years ago. It's a strep learning curve to set up a server securely so I would recommend creating a $5 droplet first and see how you find setting it up. If you have no problems you can then scale it up. Means you can try it out with no commitment.
I agree with Stewart. Start with the server setup first. I'd also recommend the $5 droplet. Move one blog at a time. You'll have to install everything from the OS to the webserver, setup DNS, configure firewall and more. I don't mean to scare you, but if you don't do it right, you'll be an easy target for someone who's trying to hack you.
