Migrate WordPress from Cloudways to Vultr with ServerPilot (In 1 hour)




  • Improved formatting with headings
  • Re-arranged steps, moved updating DNS records to the top to avoid the chances of connection refused error after installing SSL.
  • Added some missing steps and information.
  • Fixed some typos


vultr is very nice, unfortunately can not downgrade,only upgrade :disappointed_relieved:


You can only downgrade on Amazon AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. These are highly scalable servers, unlike DO and Vultr.



It may take up to few hours. Please keep patience.


You can take backup of your WordPress and restore it to the new server.

I guess this happened because I added a :luxembourg: Luxembourgish Credit Card


Your Vultr account name and the payee name should be same, else it may require manual review like it happened. No worries, they will release your account. :slight_smile:


How you get that card? :thinking::thinking::thinking:


I followed your guide @GulshanKumar and setup a demo blog, now my blog is able to access with both https://www.example.com and https://example.com.

How to redirect www to non-www version?


Don’t you know rich people have cards from all around the world? :thinking::thinking::thinking:


hmm… I am also about to signup and setup the vultr account for testing my test website first and then my main blog!

Hope my Indian Credit card will work! :slight_smile:


Good Luck :heart_eyes::+1:


Same thing happened with me and after that they removed the $25 credit which I got from @GulshanKumar link… :disappointed_relieved::persevere:




Thanks! I am only a newbie to WordPress and SEO. You people are expert! Me just learning now days only.


LOL, will I get the credit or not then? :disappointed_relieved:


@Saksham Did you created 2 accounts by mistake? Bcoz i mailed vultr few hours back for any discount. They are also forward me the same link of $25 credit, that gulshan has given.

I am yet to create an account with them. I was hoping to do it tonight!


I paid using PayPal but the name on PayPal and on Vultr was different so I think that was the reason. And I have another account also but that is separate from start.
