    Hello :)

    1. The "Transfer Tool" option in Web Host Manager allows for the migration of accounts from other control panels such as Plesk. It's located at:

    "WHM Home » Transfers » Transfer Tool"

    Documentation on this option is available at:

    Transfer Tool - Documentation

    You can also utilize our complimentary migration services as explained at the following URL:

    Migrate to cPanel | cPanel, Inc.

    2. Could you elaborate on the addon domain name question? Are you attempting to have all of your domain names under a single cPanel account as Addon domain names?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Yes I would like to have all the domains from plesk under a single cpanel account. One of the domains as a main domain and all the rest as addon domains.

    This won't happen automatically if it's not configured that way on the Plesk server. It will likely require you to make some manual changes after transferring the accounts. I suggest using our migration service so we can review how your accounts are configured on the Plesk server and advise you of the best course of action.

    Thank you.

    No, cPanel uses different configuration files and directory structures. You won't be able to create Addon domains if they already exist as separate accounts. You would have to backup the content, remove the accounts, add the domains as Addon domains, and then manually put the content in place.

    Thank you.
