    Yeah, same here, been trying to get those sites transferred over and still waiting, paying for 2 sets of hosting from the same company is annoying as I could have transferred the sites myself in under 24 hours.
    Pretty sure a trained chimp could have done it within 72.

    Just don't move to servinio. You will have a lot of downtime and no one will reply to your tickets.

    Specialised hosting services like this exist because of SEO. Thats it.

    There is no such thing as "wordpress optimised" - its going on the exact same servers as their standard cpanel customers or whatever.

    The best server for any website is one with the resources to handle your shit, this could be a 1gb of ram VPS, a shared server split between 1000 customers or a monster of a dedicated server.

    For £30 a month from SoYouStart (Part of OVH) you will a dedicated server with 32GB of ram and free cpanel license.

    Learn basic baby level sys admin and you are away. They are a very good company and while "dedicated servers" may scare some mother fuckers away its the future. They offer so much more value and you have complete freedom over everything.

    I haven't used hostgator in a long while, but when I left they were shit and it seems they still are.
    My favorite guys are still Servikus, and on the second place it'd be PowerupHosting, you should check one of them out.

    Don't know if they can meet your exact needs, but I'd HIGHLY recommend Crocweb as a host. They're out of Canada. I moved a LOT of sites over there like 6+ months ago now. Not a single problem. And service response time for a few questions was literally within 10 minutes.

    I can't say enough good things about them. And I don't give that kind of praise lightly.

    Good luck.

    You can't access your cpanel. It sucks.

    Honestly, stay away from all EIG companies, they have been a problem for majority of the people. They are using old hardware and their entire setup is so old. There are plenty of other good hosting providers out there to try. Have a check at the entire Hosting section on BHW :)

    I once used shared hosting before 10 years, a nightmare, since then I have dedicated servers or VPS. Transfer is very easy with rsync (it syncronyse all folders and files), not need even ftp. You need to dump and inport your sql from old to new server, a DNS change and you're ready! A good shared hosting is about lets say 8$ a month and a VPS can be found for 12$ or less, with your OWN ram, cpu, etc etc... + google is full of copy/paste tuts how to install and run basic servers like nginx and mysql
    Just to give an example, I recently moved one of my dedicated servers with 9 websites(80GB files). It took me about 3 hours from the purchase to the websites ready to use. The long part is actually the software install (yum install XXXX on centos)

    I'm curious, what's the difference between Kimsufi and SoYouStart? They both belong to OVH.

    Not trying to plug anyone's hosting.. But I had a problem on my hostwinds account and the live chat person fixed that shit on the spot. I also have a host gator account.. and yep they dont reply to shit. I even tried to buy more hosting(that's how I ended up at hostwinds) and they didn't reply wtf.
    W/e I plan on moving my last site off hostgator.
