If you are using one of the applications supported by Installatron, then you can automatically move your Website to cPanel from another host, including other hosting accounts at GoWebsite. If you aren't sure if your application is supported by Installatron, search for your application on their Apps page.
There may be some reasons why your application is not supported on cPanel hosting, such as older or incompatible versions of applications. Make sure to check the applications section of cPanel to see if your app is supported.
Before using Installatron to move your Website, you will need a few pieces of information from the host where your Website currently is.
If you have Classic hosting and you don't know your FTP username and password, see Reset your FTP username and password.
To find your IP on Classic hosting, see What is my website's IP address?.
|URL||The URL for your Website as it is currently. This can be a domain (e.g. http://www.coolexample.com), a subdomain (e.g. http://subdomain.coolexample.com), or a domain and path (e.g. http://www.coolexample.com/wordpress).|
|Path||The path to your Website, from the FTP user's root directory|
|Destination||Choose a domain or subdomain from your cPanel account from the drop-down menu. If you are using a subdomain, make sure to select the version without the www.|
|Directory (Optional)||The specific directory and path you want for your website. If you plan to use a simple domain URL (www.coolexample.com), then leave this blank. If you want to use an additional path (www.coolexample.com/sitename), then enter that path now.|
|Database Management||Make sure that Automatically create a new database for the installed application is selected.|
If you are moving your Website from Classic hosting, and you choose to install this to a secondary domain, the application domain will not change automatically when you change the primary domain later in the guide. You may need to clone your Website to the primary domain after you're done moving the Website.
If you get an error message that the migration was unsuccessful, check your source host information and try again. Please note that if there are problems on the source host, such as timeouts or issues with FTP, the migration may fail.
If you get an error regarding PHP modules, you may need to enable the PHP modules that are listed in the error message.
Once this is complete, you should see your Website properly moved to the cPanel hosting, with the new domain and path.
