Your cPanel has a built-in Account Transfer tool for easy migration of websites between TDWS Cloud
As of cPanel & WHM version 56, WHM’s Transfer Tool interface allows you to transfer the following service configurations:
Before you transfer your website to your new TDWS Cloud Server using the cPanel, ensure you have the following information:
You order your new server from within your Account Center. Follow these steps to ordering a new server. At this point, your TDWS Cloud Server and old cloud servers can not share a primary domain or subdomain. It is best to use a temporary primary domain. You can change the primary domain of your TDWS Cloud Server (New Server) only after completing the migration and closing the old server.
The TTL determines the time it will take to your computer to refresh the DNS information, such as the IP address. Lower the TTL for a smooth DNS change.
Your new TDWS Cloud Server uses Plesk control panel. Configure your server’s basic settings without creating a customer or subscription on your TDWS Cloud Server by following the Plesk first-time setup instructions.
Follow these exact steps to make the server transfer:
3. Enter the old server (remote server) information including the Remote Server Type and Remote Server Address (IP). The Use SSH option.
Click the Fetch Account List to open a new window that queries your old cloud server and gets all accounts available for transfer
The Web Host Manager now fetches and returns all domains you can transfer from your old cloud server. Choose the domains you want to transfer to the new TDWS Cloud Server then click Copy.
Follow the browser warning to complete the transfer: do not press the back button or close the window until the migration is finished. The transfer can take minutes or even hours depending on the amount of data to copy.
Use the transfer log files’ View Log link to double-check on the errors. Though errors are normal during a server migration process due to the cautious nature of the transfer tool, check specifically for any error that would have led to an incomplete domain transfer.
On your new TDWS Cloud server, abort any stalled transfer, fix the error and then re-start the failed transfer.
If all went well,
