How To Move Users And Domains To My Private Server?

Most users do not choose the option to move their website and users to VPS when they place their order. If you too haven’t, you can do so later by following a few steps.

How to migrate your sites and users:

Choose the required VPS from the dropdown menu and click on “Move all shared users and domains” button. This will move all the users and domains from shared to a private server.

Go to Panel> Domains> Manage domains page. Click on Edit on the right of the domain which you can find under “web hosting” column. Next go to the “Users, files, Paths” section.

On the right, you can find “Run this domain under the user”. Select “create a new user”. Enter a user name in the server and click on save changes. It may take about 15 minutes for you to use the new account. However, the migration of data may take time based on the volume of data.
