Migrating Your cPanel Site from Another Host to GoDaddy

If you want to migrate your site hosted by another company to GoDaddy, you can use cPanel's backup features. This will move your website, its databases, as well as the email accounts you have set up on cPanel.

A quick note about email — if you follow these instructions, your email will continue working like it did before. However, if you change your domain's nameservers to point to our nameservers, it might stop your email from working.

Though this process has a number of steps, you can complete them in about an hour. Here's what to do:

    Download all of your backups from your current host.
    Restore those backups at GoDaddy.
    Preview your site on our servers.
    Make it live.

It's pretty easy.
Backing Up Your Site

Before you get started, we recommend purchasing and setting up your cPanel account with us. After you get that completed, start backing up your site at your current host.
To Backup Your cPanel Account at Your Current Host

    Log in to your cPanel account.
    In the Files section, click Backup Wizard.
    Click Backup.
    Click Home Directory.
    Click Home Directory, and then click Go Back.
    Click MySQL Databases.
    Click each of your databases' names to download a backup of it, and then click Go Back.
    Click Email Forwarders & Filters.
    Click each of your domain names to download a backup of its forwarders, click System Filter Info, and then click Go Back.

Make sure you know where all of these files are stored so you can find them for the next step.
Restoring Your Site

Now that you have all of your backups, you can restore them on your GoDaddy cPanel shared hosting account.

To Restore Your Backups

    Log in to your GoDaddy account.
    Click Web Hosting.
    Next to the cPanel account you want to use, click Manage.
    In the Files section, click Backup Wizard.
    Click Restore.
    Click Home Directory.
    Click Choose File, select the Home Directory backup you generated at your current host, and then click Upload.

    Note: This can take a while depending on the size of your backup.
    After the restore completes, close the new window that opened, and then click Go Back.
    Click MySQL Databases.
    Click Choose File, select the MySQL backup you generated at your current host, and then click Upload.
    Close the new window that opened, and repeat the previous step for each database you backed up. When you're done, click Go Back.
    Click Email Forwarders & Filters.
    Click Choose File, select the forwarders or filters backups you generated at your current host, and then click Upload.

That's it! You've successfully moved your website from your current host to us.

Previewing Your Site

To make sure everything works before moving your DNS, you can preview your site.
To Preview Your Site

    In cPanel, go to the cPanel tab at the top of the page.
    In the Domains section, click Preview Website.
    Next to the domain you're using, click Preview.

Some types of websites, including WordPress®, will have issues with their CSS when you preview them. This is normal and, unfortunately, difficult to fix. However, when you're site's live, everything will function normally.

If everything looks fine, you can update your DNS at your domain registrar to point to your cPanel shared hosting. Just update your primary A record (@) with your hosting account's IP.

Updating Your DNS

To find your hosting account's IP address, go to the cPanel tab at the top of the page. Your Websites IP Address displays on the left.

    If your domain name is registered with us, you can update your primary A Record (@) to your cPanel IP address in the DNS Manager (more info).
    If your domain name is registered elsewhere, contact your registrar for help updating your DNS.

 How-to: Migrate Accounts From One Server To Another (cPanel)

    Hello. I am writing this tutorial because this is a solid method I have used in the past for easily migrating cPanel accounts from one server to another. Using this method, you can transfer accounts from an old server, to a new one, help customers from another host move to your host, etc. This method is very simple, and does not even require root access on one end of the migration. I have found the "Transfer Account from another Server" tool in WHM to not work so well, and break often, so I have used this method.

    -cPanel on both servers
    -WHM access on the new server (one that the accounts are being moved to)
    -root access on the new server

    Throughout the instructions I will refer to the server your are transfering the accounts from as the "old server", and the server to are transfering the accounts to as the "new server".

    1. Log into WHM of your new server and create a new account called "restore", or anything you like for that matter. Remember the FTP address, username ('restore', in this example), and account password. We will need these for later.

    2. Log into the cPanel account you are wanting to transfer on the old server.

    3. Click on "Backup >> Generate/Download a Full Backup".

    4. Once here, select the backup destination to be "Remote FTP Server".

    5. Enter your email address for verification, follwed by all of the FTP account information for "restore", which we created on the new server.

    -Remote Server: new server's address
    -Remote User: restore
    -Remote Password: restore's password
    -Port: 21

    Then, click "Generate Backup". This may take some time to backup the files, depending on how large the account is. You should receive an email provided in the above info once it is complete.

    6. Now, log into SSH on your new server.

    7. Type in the following commands:

    cd /home/restore/public_html


    After running the list command above (ls), you should see the tar file of the account on the old server. This means that you have successfully sent the file via FTP to your new server.

    8. Now move the tar file to your new server's /home directory with the following command:

    mv tar_file_name /home

    9. Now, log into WHM on your new server and navigate to "Backup >> Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file"

    Once here, you should see the old account's username under "Possible cpmove archives found:".

    If you do not, log back into SSH and be sure that the account's tar file has been moved into /home.

    10. Type in the account name in the text field in WHM, which is proceeded by "Enter the username for the account you wish to restore:".

    11. Click "Restore".

    12. Repeate process for additional accounts.

    That's all there is to it! I have found this way to work alot more sufficiently for moving accounts from one server to another. Hope you all enjoyed!
How to transfer email accounts and messages between cPanel servers?

You can transfer the email accounts and messages for a particular domain, from one cPanel server to another, by following the steps below.

Let's call the domain for example. Make sure that you have added as Parked or Addon in cPanel at the destination server.

    Transferring the email accounts

Open your preferred FTP client, connect to the hosting account where the email accounts/messages currently are and navigate to the etc/ folder (located under / home/ cpaneluser/ etc/). There you will see a folder named (the name of the domain you want to transfer the accounts/messages for). Download this folder anywhere to your local computer. This folder contains the email addresses (server configuration setup, encrypted passwords, etc.) associated with the corresponding domain.

Now connect with your FTP client to the server where you want to transfer the accounts. Navigate again to the etc/ folder and upload the previously downloaded folder.

With this, the transfer of the email accounts is completed.

Before proceeding with the messages transfer you should remove or rename the downloaded directory on your local computer.

    Transferring the email messages

Simply repeat the process from step 1. This time, however, you should navigate to the mail/ folder (located under / home/ cpaneluser/ mail/). Download the directory called to your local computer. This directory contains the messages for After that connect to the other account where you want to transfer the messages and upload the folder to the mail/ directory.

With this, the transfer of your email accounts and messages is completed.

Now you can access cPanel -> Email accounts of the destination hosting account and check your transferred emails.

Your DNS provider will be able to assist you with the MX record changes, so you can point the mail-flow for to the new hosting server.
Hosting Related / Godaddy India - Problems with domain registrar transfers
« Last post by certforumz on December 21, 2017, 07:23:40 AM »
Today, we tried to transfer a domain registered with to another registrar. After placing the order at another registrar using authorization code from the previous registrar, the domain transfer was declined, saying that there were some issues pending. When we checked, a new requirement came up, that says please "whois" confirm your domain. But, we never received the email regarding whois confirmation. When we click resend, it says the email was resent, but never received. After wasting lot of time, we called up godaddy call center in India, (lot of waiting and promotional messages, in between), the emails were received. The support guy was giving some reasons like our yahoo email was not receiving the emails. But, how the emails were received now in the same account after talking to the support guy?

A bad experience with Godaddy India.
Given below are a few hosting providers that appear to be genuine and providing cheap rates:

3. (a bit costly, but useful for serious hosting)

Check with the following site for finding a good site, reviews are available:

Never host with:
1. - their servers are hacked all the time! and so are your websites. Our sites were targets of spamware time and again when were hosting with their reseller account. After changing hosting provider to, not even once hacked.

2. - We subscribed  because it was cheap. They suspended the accounts soon after transfer saying that one of the sites had malware. Don't know why all sites need to be suspended if one site had malware. When asked for access via control panel to clean up reported malware, they asked for driving license, etc to be sent by email for verification. Just discontinued. They kept on sending invoice due notices for several months though the a/c was cancelled. (no refund issued for the amount already paid, said they don't refund on issues with malware!)
