    What I typically recommend is that the client in their cPanel interface on the old host create/download a full site backup. They then send that file to you. You then upload the file to /home or /root. Then go to WHM -> Backup -> Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file. Type in the username they had on their old web host (note, this will be somewhat obvious in the name of the file, ex: backup-date_username.tar.gz) and follow any on-screen instructions that follow.

    thankx David , i now use the same way but i don't let my clients take the backup and send it , i creat a new account on my server with the same username and password for the client website and then take a full backup and send it to a remote FTP , then i move the backup to the /root and go to the WHM and then restore a full backup ...
