    Hi guys,

    What is the best/quickest way to move all files/websites to new domain names?

    So for example, I am marketing "thisdomain.com".. I want to purchase 'thatdomain.com" & use the same exact pages as the above domain.

    I know I have to add the domain within my cpanel & change the nameservers for the domain but is there an easy way to transfer files/pages to the new domain? The last time I did this I moved everything by hand using my ftp client but it took quite a long time.

    Sorry if I am missing something obvious here & thanks for the help. :)

    do a back up from the old domain and then put everything in the domain you just bought

    A backup within cpanel? I can then reload everything from there as well?

    yeah just back it up and ftp it to your new domain

    or you could go to the FTP and copy everything and paste it in your desktop and then from the desktop to you new domain
    and then erase everything you put on your desktop so you wont get to much space accumulated

    I am pretty sure that you can even do a fullbackup of your entire account in WHM if you have access to it.
