Good morning everyone, I have a question, I have my 4 domains of my clients within the same drop of $ 15 but I want to know, if I can transfer each domain in each drop of $ 5 that is, it would be 4 drops of $ 5 and delete the $ 15 drop. Can I do it or not?

Hello @DavidLuceroSigcho ,

Yes, this is possible. We recommend you to take a Snapshot of the $15 Droplet before making any changes so that your data is saved.

You can create four Droplets with the required plan, and migrate the application data using an SFTP client.

Hope this helps.

SFTP is a secure way to transfer files between local and remote servers. Much more secure than FTP, this protocol uses an SSH tunnel to establish a connection and uses encryption to transfer files in an interactive session.

Hi there,

In addition to what Lalitha mentioned already, I could also suggest taking a look at the rsync command as per this tutorial here:

In this tutorial we'll use Rsync to copy files over SSH.
