Not without changing servers, but the migrations tools have worked well in our testing/use so far. Given the increased demand for moving from cPanel to DirectAdmin we will start officially supporting cPanel to DA conversions. We're still working on internal documentation and training but we'll likely update the site this week. We've already been performing these migrations for people for a week or so now with great success. Many people are pretty angry with cPanel on principal alone and rightly so.Can you go from CP to DA without changing servers or is CP so engrained in to the server?
I suppose I could be mistaken but I thought that this comment by Jonathan set the issue to rest...
@onas is correct. I was referring to the second announcement from cPanel not really changing anything from the first. It basically just added another license level at 50 accounts.The second announcement did not come with anything new .... so the price increase issue remains.

DA has native support for importing cPanel backups.
Anyway, let's wait for a KH official response.
We should be happy that KH has a lot of expertise in DA panel
We're still working on it to make sure things are as fair as possible to our customers.CPanel announced the new prices on June 27, after 35 days KnowHost is unable to disclose the new cPanel licensing cost? Does cPanel not yet allow datacenters to post new prices?
I wouldn't suggest running CentOS Web Panel on any production server due many exploits that seem to happen pretty regularly. Case in point, one from very recently: https://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/47124Centos web panel is promising ( very easy to use ) it has bugs but every day it is becoming better and better and for paid one Directadmin. Many are moving to directadmin. The sooner you make yourself free from the greedy cpanel it better.
We're monitoring the situation quite closely, but we're not ready to make an official announcement. It's frustrating not knowing, we understand, but this is understandably a complicated situation, and we're trying to look out for customers in the process. Just hang in there.Overall the situation is still very dynamic and fluid behind the scenes. We will have an official announcement at some point but we don't know exactly when yet.
