Transfer account to another NEW server using RSYNC or SCP commands.
root@OLD[~]#rsync -avz –progress /home/cpmove-cpuser.tar.gz root@<newserverip>:/home

Thats all !!!
Mostly it will be best doing via screen.
Login your old server via root user and goto your home folder. This command will skip on your account home directory (public_html) and compress all other files include database, emails,etc.,
Once backup completed transfer backup file to your remote server and restore vis /scripts/restorepkg <cpuser>. Once these process completed rsync public_html folder from OLD server to NEW server
root@OLD[~]#rsync -avz –progress /home/cpuser/public_html root@<newserverip>:/home/cpuser
root@c5-2 [~]# /scripts/restorepkg anyuser
