    I just bought a site. I want to transfer from the seller host to mine. I have limited experience using ftp, but I know how to use it. I am using cuteftp (30 day trial).

    1) Download the site to your system from the sellers host.
    2) Download the sites database to your system from the sellers host. (if sites has a database)
    3) Upload all the files to the domains directory
    4) Upload the database using phpMyAdmin on your cPanel (if sites has a database)
    5) Edit the configuration file of the website and update it with your hosts settings
    6) Change the domains nameserver to you host.

    Done!!! :D

    take a look at joomlaplug.com they have a great tool for moving dynamic database driven websites called xcloner, although this is a joomla plugin they also have a standalone version too

    the tool basically does what abhi1 told you to do but makes it a little easier and quicker to do

    regardless make sure you have the following credentials - you will need them:

    1) ftp username and password
    2) username and password to access his database as well as the database name

    The www, access and public does not want to transfer, I tried multiple times.
    I gave up on it.

    How would I let somebody into my hosting account without them messing my account up, seeing what I got and changing to my password.

    Yes I got somebody in mind (the seller), so dont ask.
