Migrating Sites or Web Hosting Packages to a new provider can be a daunting task. Over the years, we’ve seen countless instances of clients sticking with their hosts despite constant difficulties and we’ve come to understand the worry that migration brings.

CPanel Migration – What to look out for:

While the cPanel migration process is pretty straightforward, there are certain pain points in this process. For instance:

  • In the case of Reseller Hosting packages, without the WHM backup option the migration process is tedious with users having to backup & restore each account separately. Having the WHM backup option enabled solves this problem but a majority of hosts don’t provide this option in order to minimize server load.
  • When migrating Shared Hosting packages another issue users face is while they can generate a full website backup they would have to restore various sections of their site separately.
