    We have just had a client signup who is coming from another host with a site over 400MB in size.

    Bascially we would like to know if there is anyway we can grap either the account or a backup of the account from the current hosting providers server to ours and then unzip into their account?

    Thank you for your help

    Are they coming from another Cpanel server? If so the process is very easy.

    mark1hos,

    If you have access to the Web Host Manager (WHM) then there is a feature in there to import another Cpanel site. You just need the connection information to the old server.

    If you don't have the access to the WHM is still may be possible with a script or just downloading and uploading after the site is create. But if I did not have access I would contact my NOC or Hosting Company and ask them if they would do it. It happens very quickly and is much easier. We have literally transferred hundreds without a handle of glitches. i.e. losing one connection or the other type of thing. I hope this helps.
