Hey guys I was wondering how I could transfer the WHM cPanel to normal unlimited GoDaddy hosting. The company that set up my website used cPanel WHM and I'm not used to it at all unfortunately :(. I'm better with just using regular hosting and FTP access to make minor changes here and there.

If anyone could provide me instructions I'd really appreciate it. I apologize if I posted the thread in the wrong section.

Hello :)

You will need to contact your web hosting provider directly if you need assistance with changing your hosting plan. Otherwise, you can access FTP using a FTP client and your cPanel username/password.

Thank you.

I did, godaddy basically said to backup everything from cPanel WHM and transfer it over. The problem is I don't know how to backup EVERYTHING there are a few backup options on the cPanel WHM and I don't know what I'm supposed to do in order to obtain all the files for the transfer.

Thanks for your reply.

You can use the "Backup Wizard" option in cPanel to create a full backup of your website. However, note that if you are switching to a server with a different control panel, that it's not easily restored. You will have to manually extract and upload the data from the backup archive that's generated.

Thanks.

You should see a "Backup Wizard" or "Backups" option in cPanel. If you do not, please contact your web hosting provider for assistance.

Thanks.
