    Hey,

    Both control panels have the ability to do what you are requesting.

    For cPanel, use "Copy an account from another server" feature from the Transfers tab in WHM.

    For Plesk, use Migration Manager.

    Hello,

    I do see how that would be nice, however as far as I am aware there is no conversion tool for backups. I hope this answers your question, please let me know if you have any others.

    Thank you,
    Matthew Curry

    Jestin,

    As I stated on my previous reply, you can do this through the Plesk Migration Manager.

    SB-Nick, always fun when the user's don't bother to read posts, ey? :rolleyes:

    Anyway, as was already stated ....

    Cpanel and Plesk have conversion tools on each others menus!

    (Those two have long been rivals and each will openly import the other! ;) )

    However with that said, it should be noted that Cpanel is substantially better as Plesk lacks some administrative functionality and for some things is downright screwy and it should probably be mentioned that I am equally proficient in both of them as a top level expert and programmer. The casual user may not realize the problems with Plesk immediately but when you get deeper into administrating your server, it won't take too long before you find out your hands are tied and some common administrative tasks are not so easy as they should be.
