Moving from hostgator to dreamhost - Help!

Hi ,
I am currently with hostgator and i have a website with their shared server . My site is a wordpress blog . Recently they shut down my service for about a day without any notification saying some disk usage …something like that . I want to know that if i transfer to dreamhost vps then how should i start . Secondly will vps has cpanel free or its only with shared hosting .

Get a backup of your files and you database(s).

DreamHost have their own custom Panel.


I apologize for the issues you’ve had with Hostgator, and we’re more then happy to assist with your transfer. One thing I do want to make clear before anything is that we don’t actually use cpanel. We created our version of it, called our DreamHost panel. I think you’ll find it easier to use than cpanel. Since you have a WordPress blog, I recommend looking over this article:

I hope this helps!
