How to transfer a site from a shared hosting to a dedicated server?

Transferring a site from a shared hosting to a dedicated server is a very simple procedure, the following will help in the process.

Step 1: Create the domain / site on your new server. if you're running a server with plesk control panel, go to Domains, Create new domain, enter the necessary data and click "create".

Step 2: Move the contents of the site on shared hosting to dedicated server, the best way to do this is via FTP, use your FTP client to connect to the shared server (if not already have a backup site content) and download the contents of the sites. Upload the content of sites dedicated to your server - by IP as the DNS have not yet been changed - and overcome them in the proper directories.

Step 3: Change your DNS to resolve the IP the new server. As soon as the old DNS expires, your site will be resolved from the dedicated server, which you can remove the shared hosting and graduate into the world of hosting on dedicated servers!

You can see that a dedicated server will allow more disk space and transfer. It also allows you unlimited domain names. Dedicated servers are known to be much more stable and allow more control over your website and are perfect for a professional image.

But I always recommend a web hosting service that allows you to have multiple domain names with one account. It does not really resolve the problem of having multiple hosting accounts for different domain names.

Other things to look. Other things to think about finding a hosting company is what we intend to do with your website
