Introducing automated upgrades from web hosting to VPS and Hybrid Servers | Heart Internet Blog – Focusing on all aspects of the web

Web Hosting and Reseller Hosting customers can now upgrade to a VPS or Hybrid Server with just one click thanks to our brand new and easy to use feature.

Web hosting customers can make the move to our VPS or Hybrid Server platform via the “Upgrade Web Hosting” wizard, and Reseller Pro customers can find the upgrade process in the “Manage Hosting Accounts” section of the Reseller Control Centre. Our migration tool will move over your SSL certificates, email, site data and databases, and DNS (if requested) during the upgrade as well.

When you upgrade to VPS or a Hybrid Server, your existing hosting package won’t be deleted until you tell us to do so, leaving you in full control of the migration process.

The upgrade is a free service for any web hosting or Reseller Pro customer who buys a VPS or Hybrid Server via this upgrade path, making the process as quick and simple as possible.

VPS are perfect for websites that are experiencing growth, need flexibility, or if you’re looking for something more powerful than shared hosting. RAM, CPU and Hard Drive space can all be altered depending on the needs of the website, giving a fully scalable hosting solution for busy and mission-critical websites.

Hybrid Servers contain the perfect mix of virtualisation technology and dedicated resources, offering incredible power, security and stability. With zero I/O share, users of Hybrid Servers can make use of the extra power without being affected by other activity on the server.

Just follow these quick step-by-step guides to complete the upgrade:

Reseller Pro customers

    • Log-in to your Reseller Control Centre.• Click “Manage Hosting Accounts”.• Choose the package you wish to upgrade to a VPS or Hybrid Server.• Click on “VPS” or “Hybrid” underneath the “Upgrade to” column in the table.• Select the specifications you want and order.• Continue to your basket to complete the upgrade.

Web Hosting customers

Please note that you must take CPanel as part of the upgrade; Windows packages are not supported as VPS and Hybrid Servers are Linux based. The upgrade is free but you must purchase a VPS or Hybrid Server as part of the upgrade.

Enjoy your new server!
