The FTP details include:
– FTP server, which is the default server host that we assign to your customer at signup :
This is where the FTP server host is located in the Welcome email that we send to your customers on your behalf:
– FTP username, which is the customer’s account username on the new server, also found in the Welcome mail:
– FTP password, which is the customer’s FTP password, featured right under the FTP username in the Welcome mail:
7. Finally, the customer will need to enter ‘/’ (slash) as the remote directory in the Remote dir field:
8. When done, the customer needs to click on the ‘Generate Backup’ button and to wait for the backup to upload to the newly created hosting account:
When the backup is complete, our support staff will be notified immediately by email and will start the migration straight away without any delay. All this will be done on behalf of your company for free.
We have also prepared a special user-oriented Control Panel tutorial, which our technicians will give to your customers to help them with the cPanel site transition.
