Hi,

I have a few questions for Cpanel folk regarding the latest Cpanel 11.23.3 build.

On the Cpanel blog it states:

In 11.23 when transferring accounts, the utilities use WHM instead of rsync in order to improve speed and deal better with large file sizes.
1.) It looks like a mistake - was it meant to say utilities use rsync instead of scp?
2.) I see there's an FTP option now as well - is this faster than scp? The rsync option is probably the fastest right?
3.) If original server is moving to a new server using the same nameservers, i.e. ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com, then express transfers should not be used. Am I correct in assuming that only if the new server is using different nameservers that are already active then express transfers should be used?

Thanks,
Suhail.
