View Full Version : Shared to VPS?
July 28th, 2006, 17:41
I will soon need hosting but in the beginning shared hosting should be enough but later i will need a VPS, Is it easy for a host to upgrade a shared hosting account to a VPS?
I just want to know so i can know if i should just buy a small VPS now or go with shared hosting then upgrade.

You could go eitehr way mate, it depends on the VPS software that the Hosting Comapny has got really, but it would be easy enough to make a backup of your site and just slot it onto a vps, yeh...

but if you think about it in the long run is it??? Cos your going to be paying say about $10 a month for a good quality host, for a few months and then your gonna switch onto a vps... it could end up a bit tits up if ya get me!!!

Well if you use WHM then you can easily upgrade from a Reseller account to a VPS.
Just order the VPS two days before your Reseller runs out, this gives you two days to either transfer the accounts over using WHM inbuilt server transfer. Also most VPS companies sometimes do this for you for free or a small cost.
However this is not hard to complete, and is quite quick to setup and leave.
