The manual transfer requires you to download files as well as the database and then upload them to your new server. But there is another method on dedicated servers that allows you to copy your account directly from your previous cPanel host.
What You Will Need?
To start you will need your server address (IP or FQDN) which you can either find yourself or get from your service provider. Second, you are going to need the username and password of your cPanel account.
How To Start?
Log in to your SANGKRIT.net account and follow these steps:
- Open the Products page and click the Servers tab
- Click Launch (Next to the account, you want to use)
- Click Manage Server (WHM) (visible next to cPanel Site)
- Click Proceed
On your WHM panel use the left side navigation search box to find the page ‘Copy an Account From Another Server With an Account Password’. On this page, you will see fields for the Server to copy from, username, and password.
On the ‘Server to Copy’ field enter the IP address of your remote server. Next, fill in the username and password then press the ‘Copy Account’ button.
In case you have an additional IP address assigned to your server. You can also select the ‘Give new account an IP address’ option to get the available IP address automatically assigned to your new account.
How Does It Work?
The server will try to connect to the remote cPanel server and copy the specified account.
It is going to check the remote server every minute till the backup is completed. So at the time the copy process goes do not close your web-browser tab.
How Much Time Does It Take?
The time it takes depends on the size of your account on the remote server and once the account is successfully copied you will see the account restored message.
How To See Your Newly Transferred & Restored Account?
Once you see the account restored message at the bottom of the page. Use the top-left search box to type ‘list’, then click on the ‘List Accounts’ option. You should now see the copied account on your server.
How To Make It Work?
Once you have made sure that your old account has been copied to your new server at SANGKRIT.net. You will need to update your domain’s name servers to make your domain point to this new location.
In case you need any kind of assistance in transferring your website, simply contact the support of SANGKRIT.net via the Support Page or Helpline numbers.
