    Hello, please keep in mind that I am fairly new. What is the easiest way to transfer a site over to my server? Should I do it in WHM or manually manually tar up the files, download them to my computer, then reupload to my server using FTP?

    As long as you have the correct login on the other Server, I would suggest using WHM to do the transfer.

    Remember also that after any transfers you need to assign Ownership, change IP address and also Edit DNS to use the correct Nameservers. This too, is all done through the 'root' WHM and once you do it a few times it becomes pretty easy. ;)
