This is a good deal closer. Do you guys do free migration from plesk to cpanel from a different host? And how would this go (what is the protocol)? Very interested VPS customer.

We can do this - typically we'd attempt to use cPanels Plesk migration tool which usually works fine. We can also migrate the files, databases and such over manually.

The work flow (VPS) would generally be:

1) Order the VPS and await activation

2) Once activated setup the basic cPanel settings (setup PHP how you want, misc settings)

3) Submit a ticket to our VPS department stating you want to migrate from your old Plesk based host to your new VPS which has cPanel. Provide the login information to the other host. We'll start the migration and keep you updated via ticket.

4) Write a review how awesome we are. (OPTIONAL)

I felt like this was a bait and switch tactic. Did exactly as told and then was told by tech support that I could do it on my own via WHM. Um, ok, but I asked before I purchased the plan for a reason..

After a few attempts and poking around I managed to do it myself just because I was curious but I'm sure there are customers that will actually care about the answer to a question in a pre-sale forum and then someone following through to their word.

The reason for me asking if you guys would do it is because I prefer someone with more experience doing it versus me, with no prior knowledge of the tools used. At this point, I'm not sure if I even did it right but I will play around and manage as issues arise.

There's no point to beat the horse to death, but something with this bugged me to the point I had to express my feelings.

Just giving my review! Upside, server is screaming fast and VPS setup was very fast to my liking. :)
