Just buy a new hosting from Vultr and setup a hosting control panel with it.
I also used Vultr VPS but when my website traffic increased then it could not afford and I must move to a new vps hosting. Why you try to find a Vps provider here https://forumweb.hosting/marketplace/categories/vps-hosting-offers.8/ I see that there are more good hosts there with low rates.

Typically, the hosting you switch to helps customers do this. The best option will be to contact the support service, they should reffer you to proper howto post.
You can also do it yourself, but this procedure is more complicated and individual.

Namecheap provides control panel such as cPanel/WHM for web hosting...Consider installing cPanel on your VPS and utilizing the built-in "Transfer Tool" to easily move your account to your VPS server.

How can I do it?
Moving from shared hosting to VPS hosting can seem like a daunting task, but with the right preparation and guidance, it can be a relatively straightforward process. Here are some steps you can follow to move your WordPress website from shared hosting to VPS hosting:

Step 1: Choose a VPS hosting provider

There are many VPS hosting providers available, each with their own set of features and pricing plans. You'll want to choose a provider that offers the resources and support you need for your website. Some popular options include DigitalOcean, Linode, and AWS or here https://forumweb.hosting/marketplace/ or this page https://forumweb.hosting/top-quality-best-web-hosting/

Step 2: Set up your VPS

Once you've chosen a VPS hosting provider, you'll need to create an account and set up your VPS. This typically involves choosing an operating system (such as Ubuntu or CentOS), selecting a server size and location, and creating a root password.

Step 3: Install and configure WordPress on your VPS

Once your VPS is set up, you'll need to install and configure WordPress. There are several ways to do this, but one common method is to use a tool such as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) or LEMP (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP) stack. This involves installing the necessary software packages and configuring them to work together.

Step 4: Transfer your website files and database to the VPS

Before you can make your website live on the VPS, you'll need to transfer your website files and database from the shared hosting environment. This typically involves using an FTP client or file manager to download your website files from the shared hosting environment, and then uploading them to the VPS. You'll also need to export your WordPress database from the shared hosting environment and import it into the VPS.

Step 5: Configure your website settings

Once your website files and database are on the VPS, you'll need to configure your website settings to work with the new environment. This may involve updating your website URL, setting up SSL, and configuring your email settings.

Step 6: Test your website

Before making your website live on the VPS, it's important to test it to make sure everything is working properly. This may involve checking your website pages, links, and functionality.

Step 7: Update your DNS settings

Once you've tested your website and confirmed that everything is working properly, you can update your DNS settings to point your domain name to the new VPS. This typically involves changing the nameservers or DNS records for your domain name to point to the IP address of the VPS.

In summary, moving from shared hosting to VPS hosting involves choosing a provider, setting up your VPS, installing and configuring WordPress, transferring your website files and database, configuring your website settings, testing your website, and updating your DNS settings. While the process may seem complex, following these steps can help ensure a successful transition to VPS hosting for your WordPress website.

Hope it helps!

The first question I would ask is, do you have the server administration experience necessary to run a VPS yourself?

I see so many people trying to leave a shared hosting environment for the sole purpose of trying to save money, that have little to no experience in server administration and then end up with a hacked server or a server full of malware because they have no idea on how to properly secure it and maintain it.

I would suggest you go with Managed VPS Hosting, and if you want to go with Vultr it is not that hard to set up your Wordpress website over there.

  1. Install CyberPanel (Its Free and Fast)
  2. Enable CSF (Its free and offer basic security)
  3. Move your website files and database
  4. Change your DNS to Vultr
  5. After Propagation, Install SSL from the CyberPanel
  6. And if you get a 404 error on the internal pages of your website, then log in to your WP Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks > SAVE.
You need basic technical knowledge to complete these steps properly, or you can hire someone to migrate your website

Before you move to a VPS, make sure you have a clear understanding of your current hosting setup, your resource usage, and your requirements for the new hosting environment. This includes things like the amount of storage and bandwidth you need, the number of visitors you expect, and any specific software or applications you need to run.

Once you have a good understanding of your requirements, choose a reliable VPS provider that meets your needs and offers the level of support you require.

Moving from shared hosting to VPS hosting can provide you with more resources and control over your website, but it also requires some technical knowledge and preparation. Here are the steps you can take to move from shared hosting to VPS hosting:
  1. Choose a VPS hosting provider: Research VPS hosting providers and choose one that meets your needs in terms of price, features, and reliability.
  2. Select a VPS plan: Choose a VPS plan that provides enough resources to meet your website's needs, including CPU, RAM, storage, and bandwidth.
  3. Set up your VPS: Once you have selected a VPS plan, the hosting provider will set up your VPS environment. You will receive access credentials to manage your VPS.
  4. Migrate your website: To migrate your website to the VPS, you can either use a migration plugin or manually transfer files and databases to the new server. You can also create a backup of your website before migrating to ensure that you don't lose any data.
  5. Configure your VPS: Configure your VPS according to your website's requirements. This may include installing a web server, database server, and other software.

You are supposed to buy vps/set up with your provide, try to install trial cpanel on it and then initiate cpanel to cpanel migration, this will help you to migrate your website as it from current hosting provider to new vps. You can also buy service at Redswitches for managed services.

Different ways exist to transfer your WordPress website from Namecheap shared hosting to Vultr VPS hosting with the same domain name.

One possible method is to use an All-in-one WP migration plugin that can export and import your WordPress site as a single file. Another possible way is to use Vultr’s one-click OpenLiteSpeed, which can deploy a WordPress site on a Vultr server with minimal effort. You must also update your domain name settings to point to your new Vultr server IP address.
