I am moving websites from a dedicated server, using WHM/cpanel to another cPanel hosting, using same control panel. I am just curious what is the fastest way to move a website from a cpanel hosting to another cpanel hosting? I only want to move websites and emails accounts. Any help?

Hi David,

Great question! :)

It depends on your website and it's content. If the website is not to complicated then you can use the built in transfer tool located in WHM:

WHM has a built-in feature for migrating accounts from one WHM/cPanel installation to another. This great feature takes a lot of the guess work out of migrating websites by migrating all files, configurations, websites, images, and databases with very limited interaction.

However keep in mind that in order to utilize this tool you will need root access on your WHM account for the server that you are transferring to. Another thing to keep in mind is that you can also always ask your provider to transfer your websites and content for you. Many do not charge for this.

Let me know if you have any questions about this and the tool. Happy to help!

When i clicked on transfer tool

it appeared this

What to fill in remote server access?
Do I need to create a same username on the targeted server to transfer old username to it? How long does it take will this process finish? for example, I have a website with 5 GB of data.
