    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.
