Can I change the name manually? or do I have to change on Godaddy's Cpanel?
And do I have to delete my goddady cpanel before I restore backup in DA?

Thank you,
Yes, you can rename it manually. Removal of real account is not needed, as you are restoring to a new box.

Thank you so much,

I've got one more question;
after I restored my backup to DA, how do I import my domain to DA?

I think you’re talking about DNS changes, right?
Yes I currently on Shared hosting in Godaddy and bought my domain from GoDaddy. I could not figure out how to transfer hosting to my VPS/DA server.

Could you give me some directions please?

After I changed the username max lenght now I get this error;

Those were just warnings :) Do you have any issues with the account?

I see it did not restore "domain.com" as it already existed on the server (you cannot have 2 accounts owning the same domain name),.

So you are saying it's succesfully restored on my vps?

How do I point my godaddy domain to my vps?

So I'm assuming by using this method I can move from a shared hosting using cpanel (no ssh access) to my new KVM vps with directadmin, is that correct?
