Transferring my website and the backup file is too large.

In order to transfer my website I created a full zipped backup on cPanel.

My DSL connection is very slow; the zipped backup file is very large; it will take days to download to my desktop, and more days to upload it to the servers at Webhostinghub.

Is there any way to skip the download and just transfer the backup file directly to webhostinghub from my old host?

Simple, right?

Hello Sara,

I'm sorry you're having trouble transferring your Website. Two days is quite a long time for downloading a file. How large is the backup from your previous host?

We apologize for any inconvenience, but there wouldn't be a way to skip the download and transfer the file directly to the server. I'm more than happy to help you find a work around. Would it be possible to break up the files into multiple parts (separate databases from site files, etc.)?
