Transfer a website from one GoDaddy account to another

I had a family member start a website for me, but after a couple years, I had to take over to complete it. I am paying for the web hosting and domain. The contact information has been changed to mine. I created my own GoDaddy account and transferred the domain to my new account. How can I transfer the website I built to my new account instead of having to allow access through my family members account? I would like to have a digital marketing manager work on my site, without having backdoor access to my family members account.

You can only transfer domains between accounts - other products cannot be transferred - so you would need to purchase new hosting and then move the files in order to get it completely out of the other account.
