Hello there,

I would like to ask if it is hard to migrate your website from direct admin to Cpanel? How about ftp and database. If I am a beginner can I do it by myself? What is the simplest way to do this? Do you think that It could be done by a non-specialist?

Hello @david122,

Can you confirm if you have root access to both the Direct Admin server and the cPanel & WHM server? If so, you can use WHM >> Transfer Tool to automate the migration process. We document this feature at:

Transfer Tool - Version 74 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Without root access, you'll need to manually download the website files from the source server and upload them to the destination server. We offer a guide to help with this at:

How to Manually Migrate Accounts to cPanel from Unsupported Control Panels - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.

You're welcome! Let me know if you get stuck or have questions at any point during the migration.
