    Use our transfer tools

    The WebHost Manager provides transfer tools, under the Transfers heading in the left-hand pane of the interface. Main >> Transfers >> Copy multiple accounts/packages from another server is the function that you should use when copying accounts from a server with a competing control panel.

    You will need root access to the Plesk server in order to use our transfer tool. There is no way to transfer an account from a Plesk server using our tools without the root password. If you cannot get root access to the Plesk server, the site will have to be transferred manually.

    The following section in our documentation explains our transfer tools:

    Copy Multiple Accounts/Packages from Another Server

    At this time, there are no official methods for migrating an account from Plesk to cPanel/WHM without root access to the Plesk machine.

    Perhaps you could migrate the website files and import the databases either via the command line or using phpMyAdmin.
