I need to transfer my account and all its details from Plesk to a newly created WHM account. So far, I have not been able to find an easy way to do this.

I have multiple sites, with large databases and many emails.

Is there an efficient way of achieving this?

  • In WHM (v11.46) there is an option under Home » Transfers » Transfer Tool (in older version it was Copy an Account From Another Account).

    Here, under Advanced option, choose Remote Server Type: Parallel Plesk and fill up the other required data and submit it.

  • cPanel Migration Team also provide Free Migration Service. Check out cPanel.net :: Migration Services for more details,


  1. Make sure you have enough disk space available on Plesk server for backup creation, or split the migration by selecting less accounts at a time.

  2. Schedule the migration during low traffic period as this process can cause load on the server, or due to low disk space the websites might face unusual behaviors.

  • Thanks for the help. Sorry i was away. I will look into this and will surely inform you how things goes.

  • no worries. the error is due to either the password is incorrect or SSH is not permitted on the selected user account. Commented Jan 29, 2015 at 11:50
