  • Location of your cPanel backup file
  • Name of your cPanel backup file
  • Comprehensive list of websites expected to be restored from backup file.
  • Comprehensive list of databases expected to be restored from backup file.

Please keep the following in mind when requesting a cPanel Account Restore:

  1. Customers can request assistance with restoring as-is free cPanel backups from a previous hosting provider.
  2. Website Transfer Service doesn’t guarantee removal of hack content
  3. Website Transfer process doesn’t include the transfer of Domain Registrations or emails accounts.

WARNING: Restoring a cPanel account from a cPanel backup file will overwrite the existing user’s cPanel data (including website files, emails, databases, etc.). Any data that has been saved in the existing cPanel user’s account (on your ewebhostingstore Hosting server) will be deleted and replaced with the data contained in the cPanel backup file. However, the existing cPanel account’s username (assigned by ewebhostingstore Hosting) will remain the same.

Test Your site

Once our Website Transfer Team notifies you that the restoration has been completed, you may test your website(s) to make sure everything is working properly. If you have not yet pointed your domain to our name servers, you can test your site through either your Temporary URL or by making a hosts file modification.

Update Name Servers

The final step in the process of migrating your website(s) from another host using cPanel to InMotion Hosting, is to update the name servers for your domain(s) to point to ewebhostingstore hosting.

Once you have updated the name servers with the registrar of your domain, it can take anywhere from 4-24 hours for these changes to propagate.
