I have an existing website on a VPS server, and now I want to move two web sites from another hosting service. Small size sites. I just need to know how and where can I create the folders that will receive both sites.

Hello!

Where you create the folders for your sites depends on your server's configuration. If you are using cPanel, I recommend you create an account in WHM for each website. This will allow you to manage the websites separately, which in my experience is best. Once you create the cPanel accounts, the document root directories will be:

Site 1: /home/userna1/public_html/
Site 2: /home/userna2/public_html/
Site 3: /home/userna3/public_html/

These are simply examples of dummy data to represent what the home directories for the site would appear on your server as if each site had its own cPanel user. Otherwise, if you add add-on domains to your one cPanel user for all your sites, the document root directories would be set when you create the add-on domains in cPanel. By default, they would appear like this:

Site 1: /home/userna1/public_html/
Site 2: /home/userna1/public_html/website2.com
Site 3: /home/userna1/public_html/website3.com

Again, I recommend creating a cPanel account for each website, since you have the ability to do so with your VPS. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Carlos E
