    Hey there!  The Transfer Tool on the WP Squared server is smart enough to detect if you are trying to move a non-WP Squared account to it.  You'll see an error similar to this:

    RESTORE: Account “username”: Account Restore Failed: “Aborted.”
    The “username” account is not eligible for restoration on this server: “cPanel” accounts cannot be restored on “WP Squared” systems.

    Does that answer your concerns here?

    OK, to confirm: the Transfer Tool (currently) only works between WP Squared servers.

    Potentially there will be many WordPress sites on non WP Squared servers (i.e. 'normal' WHM/cPanel servers) that would want to move to a WP Squared server. Are there any plans on the roadmap to make this possible using the Transfer Tool, i.e. to make it smart enough to handle this?

    Until such time (if ever) that it is possible, then presumably your recommendation to move a WordPress site from a cPanel server to a WP Squared server would be to use more manual methods, or perhaps a plugin like WP Migrate or similar?

    Yes, there are plans to make this compatible with WordPress sites on cPanel servers in the future :D. I can't say exactly when that will happen, but it's being worked on as we speak.

    At this point, yes, you would need to use a more manual method to move those sites to a WP Squared system.

    This information, I'd suggest, is a "semi-significant" when it comes to embracing (or not) WP Squared.

    Are there any articles with a side-by-side feature comparison of WP Square versus cPanel/WHM, so that we can get a better sense of how they compare, relative strengths and weaknesses, inclusions and exclusions. If you, could you guys write and publish one pls? AI assisted, of course :-)

    I don't have anything readily-available for that, but I let the WP Squared team know so they are looking into it!
