I have a small website (http://businessofbeinginbusiness.com) with web hosting Linux on a Deluxe plan.
I'm ready to to do more with this website, including adding an SSL certificate.
But first, I'd like to move it to cpanel with my other 2 websites.
My question: Is this something that can be done? And how is the best way to do it?
Please note that I would rate myself "novice" in terms of technical skills in this regard.
Looking forward to your help...
Solved! Go to Solution.
This IS something that can be done - as this is a WordPress website there are some steps involved like setting up a new database on the new server. This plugin can help with creating the files to move the site..... https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/
That all being said.... I do give a word of caution about having multiple WordPress sites in a single cPanel account. The word of caution is that hosting multiple websites (specifically WordPress sites) in a single cPanel account is that if one site should be compromised and the code placed on the server allows the person to view the file system, they can then get to all the other sites you have on the account.
This is why I caution people against putting multiple WordPress sites onto one cPanel account - each site should really be it's own account.

The simple answer is "Yes, you can add an existing to an existing cPanel account" @Alexas. You already seem to know What type of hosting account you have. The rest is you just using the Moving Between Hosting Accounts method. The amount of work will differ depending on the type of website you have. Does that get you started?
