Transferring data between godaddy hosting accounts.
Here’s a quick guide for moving data between linux hosting accounts on godaddy.
- Enable ssh on both accounts
- Login via ssh to the source server
- Move any data to the html directory of your source hosting account. (if its not already there)
- Use ftp on the target account to download the files from your source hosting account!
It’s that easy! The transfer speeds are crazy. I transfered my whole site at 11MB/s.
Godaddy does not support ssh, rsync, or scp from their shell. So it took me a few minutes to figure this one out. I will be switching hosting accounts soon and this trick was extremely useful for transferring large files. I will write a detailed tutorial later for backing up your entire website contents from one account to the other quickly and securely.
Later for now!
