Hi,

I am currently on shared hosting, but was wondering if there are any tools in place to move my files/repository/db to a VPS hosting server with minimal hassle, since there is a chance we might need that in the coming months.

Thanks
Zeyar

Hi Zeyar,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. Once you upgrade your account, we'll handle the migration from shared to VPS for you. There should be little to no downtime associated with the move at all.

You may have to update some external settings such as email clients if you are using the shared server details instead of your domain. Here's a link on upgrading your account:
