Transferring accounts from cPanel to Dreamhost


#1

Hello, I was just wondering if there was an easy way to go about transferring domains I have on a cPanel host to Dreamhost. cPanel -> cPanel works quite well, but I can’t seem to find any options in Dreamhost to allow me to transfer a domain.

Is the only available process:

  1. Copy files to Dreamhost
  2. Copy .sql files to dreamhots
  3. Manually setup domains
  4. Cross fingers

No, there’s no automated prcoress to accomplish this. The special files you can export from Cpanel to carry over all your settings will only work if you are moving to an other Cpanel host. As Dreamhost users a custom built panel there’s no way to bring this data in.

You should find the wiki helpful if you need some details on how to set things up. Also feel free to post here and somebody will help you out.
