I have a file on VPS1 and I want to move or transfer it to VPS2, is there a way to do this via SSH?
The speed of my VPS is very fast and I think if I can transfer files via SSH between VPS companies, its more convenient and save my time.

Sure it is possible, simply google for manuals that are available on the web

If you wanna help write some example (founded on google or on other forum), don't just say Look on SE and you can find tons of information.
That is rude and looks like spam. (there are other ways to get No. of post)

Hi Terrance

Yes you can copy files over SSH using SCP (Secure Copy).

Example usage:

Copy file from VPS1 to VPS2: scp file.txt username@VPS2:/remote/directory/
Copy directory recursively from VPS1 to VPS2: scp -r /local/directory/ username@VPS2:/remote/directory/

/remote/directory/ is the destination for your copied files

Yes, once you press enter it will prompt you for the password for the username you have given.

Once you ssh'd into the first vps you could also use ftp to transfer. something like so #ftp user@vps2
This will drop you into the home folder for user on vps2

SCP would be the way to go though, you can copy a file to anywhere on the second vps.

I knew using wget and SCP as the guide above.

How about Rsync and SFTP through SSH? Would you minding sharing details on these methods?
