    i want to transfer my WordPress sites entirely to my new host.
    I tried to use c panel backup wizard, but there i didn't find an option to select my specific domain and i don't want to download back up of all my sites , i need only that specific one.
    Also there they specified that "You cannot restore full backups through your cPanel".
    Then how i can i do transfer my site entirely (home directory+database+email+etc)

    and copy the database
    once done upload it to your new host

    For the files:
    1) Login to cpanel
    2) Go to the "File Manager"
    3) Browse to the area that contains the directory of your site. Since its an add-on domain it will probably be like this: /home/yourUsername/public_html/yoursite.com/
    4) Right click on the folder called yoursite.com and select the option to compress it.
    5) Immediately move that folder out of the public_html tree so its not acessible via a browser. Drag'n'drop should work.
    6) Login via FTP and download to your computer
    7) Login via FTp to your NEW site
    8) Upload this file to the folder right above public_html so most likely /home/yourOtherUsername/
    9) Unzip it to here
    10) Go into the folder, select all and then move to /public_html or if its an addon domain, move the files into there.


    For the database:
    1) Login to cpanel
    2) go to Phpmyadmin
    3) On the left select your databas
    4) At the top click on export
    5) Make sure the format is "SQL"
    6) click on the button to start the export
    7) Login to the new sites cpanel
    8) Go to phpmyadmin
    9) Create the database/select the database you want to use
    10) Go to import at the top
    11) Select the file and make sure the format is SQL. Click on the button to start.

    Please note that you can take the full backup of your site using backup option of cPanel but you wont be able to restore your site from that backup from your end. So it is better to take take the separate backup of your site like mysql, Email Filters, Email Forwarders ,Home Directory which you restore from your end
