I'm starting a new business. I've created a Visual Studio website consisting of many web pages, a Visual Studio project which consists of reports via Visual Studio 2013 Community and a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 database, all on my laptop. I used Visual Basic with Visual studio.

Now that everything works properly on my laptop, I want to move the website and the project to a production computer running Windows 10 and the database to a server running Windows Server 2016.

I plan to restore my laptop database backups on the Windows Server 2016 server, but I'm not sure of how to migrate the website and project to the production computer. Making sure IIS and any other dependencies are correct for smooth operations evades me. I'm unemployed at the time so hiring someone is out of the question. Any suggestions?

What I have tried:

Changing the connection strings in the website and the project on the laptop to point to the new server to create a new exe file, but I'm not sure how to actually move the exe file to the new computer.

You're vague about your "server". Hosting companies typically provide a "stack" to accommodate your web app; and instructions. A hosting plan is a couple of dollars and doesn't require hiring; just reading.
