If you are currently on a shared hosting service and want to move to a dedicated server the first step you would have to do is set up c-Panel on the dedicated server. This is done to migrate your data from shared server hosting to the dedicated server.
We offer a wide range of dedicated servers with managed services. If you order a server with managed services we would help you in migrating your data as well as setting up your server.
But cPanel comes at an additional cost because of the license fee. And at this point you want to save some money and want to buy a plain dedicated server for your HTML based website then you can set it up by following steps given below.
Choose your dedicated server as per your requirement from our wide range of options and request for an OS installation.
You can choose from a range of Linux based OS. But at this point, we recommend installing Ubuntu on your machine as it is easy to use and widely popular in the market.
Login into your machine using SSH and install web server and FTP.
Ftp will be used to transfer your files related to your website from your local machine to your server.
A web server is a software that will make your server to serve your website. The most popular web server is Apache. You can go ahead and install both using following command
$ sudo apt-get install apache2 vsftpd
Now you must copy your website code to your server. Since we have installed FTP on your server, you can transfer files from your local machine using a client. Use Filezilla as it is very easy to use. The default location where apache2 will look for is "/var/www/html" . Once you transfer the files on your server under the desired location, you should be able to access your website with the IP address of your server.
Finally, you should map your domain name to this machines IP address. This can be done by adding an ‘A’ record to your domain.
I hope the above steps are easy to comprehend. In case your requirement is specific and need more assistance please write to us at email@example.com.
