If you have root access to the server you are moving to, you can generate a full site backup on the old server, then upload that to /home on the new server and in WHM go to Backup -> Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file.

Thank you
but i dont have root access new server.
This method can be slightly less reliable since it doesn't encompass everything - but all the critical things would be transferred:

On the old server, go to your cPanel interface and click Backups. Now download all the backups except the full site backup. Then login to your cPanel Interface on the new server and in the Backups section there restore all of these backups.

Of course, the first method is the best and most web hosting providers wont have any issue with you sending them that file and they restore it for you.
