step 1. Transfer your domain (optional):
Transferring domain saves you a lot of time and resources to your new domain registrar. This helps in migrating from one host to another. It also makes sure that your domain remains safe during the process. Then export your website database and take a complete backup. Go to your cPanel and back up your files before moving on. This will help in the transfer of databases and files later but it will be there as a safety net should something go wrong.
Step 2. Import and upload your new database:
Once you have set up your VPS account, upload all your downloaded files and complete the database.
step 3. Point your IP address to your new server:
This is done by requesting your domain name registrar to your service provider over email. Then your VPS is ready.
