    i want to transfer all of my wordpress sites from 1&1 to godaddy. mainly because of wanting to have a better c panel and other reasons. i just signed up for hosting with godaddy. does anyone know how to go about transfering my sites over? i know how to transfer the domains but not the content. does anyone know of any resources about this? i have searched and cannot find anything. i'm just afraid i will lose my content.

    If I'm not mistaken, GoDaddy will (or should) do the transfers for you. Although, GoDaddy is a terrible place to host Wordpress sites IMO. Just open a support ticket with them and ask if they can do it for you. Of course, make sure you have your own personal backups of the sites on your PCs hard drive to ensure against data loss.

    1and1 does not use cpanel...

    so you have to do manually. Either via ftp or ssh...
