Hi Harry! Usually adding /cpanel to the end of a URL

(like example.com/cpanel) will take you to the cPanel login screen. Please note though that if your previous host has restricted acccess to cPanel, that URL may not work. If you have not previously been granted cPanel access, it's a good idea to check with your previous host so you know what format your data is in when you begin the website transfer process. Hope that helps!

Apologies Harry, but without a specific URL for me to check I was only able to provide general guidelines. Without knowing how much access or control you had over your previous site, it would be difficult to offer a way to check unless you already had a cPanel or WordPress login. 

The current version of your site does appear to be both cPanel and WordPress based. If you are planning to transfer this site to InMotion, you shouldn't have any trouble! 


If you're already hosting with us, my apologies, but we don't have access to private customer data in the support forums; based on your questions I had thought you were transferring a site.

If your site is already hosted here and you are having trouble logging in, I would suggest getting logged into AMP first, then resetting your cPanel and WordPress passwords. Hope that helps, but let me know if you need any further clarification.
