Yes, SKGOLD Hosting will be more than happy to assist you with the transfer of your website from your previous host to your new hosting account at SKGOLD Hosting.

Transferring a website to a new hosting provider could be a challenging process. This is why SKGOLD Hosting offers a FREE cPanel-to-cPanel Website Transfer service (some restrictions apply).

What qualifies me for a FREE Website Transfer?


  • You must have an active hosting plan with us and use the annual billing cycle.
  • You need to submit a request for transfer service within first 30 days of signup.
  • Your previous hosting company should use cPanel (hosting control panel).
  • The Full Backup generator should be active in the cPanel at your previous hosting company.
  • Your cPanel account should be under 2GB at your previous hosting company.

What if I Do Not Know what hosting control panel I am using at my previous hosting company?

Some hosts customize a hosting control panel the way that is hard to determine that you are using cPanel.

If you don't know what hosting control panel you are using, or if you are not sure whether you qualify for a FREE Website Transfer, please open a support ticket and provide us with access to the administration area at your previous hosting company. We will review your account and will let you know your options.

Full details on the website transfer process:

- Do not cancel a hosting account with your previous hosting company!
- Do not change the DNS for your domain name!
We will let you know when to update your DNS and when you can cancel with your previous host.
