    Perform Website Migration?

    Does there any way to migrate a live website from one server to different server without getting the backup?

    Most hosting companies will move your site from your old server to your new one. Just ask them.

    yes, ask your hosting provider to transfer your site. Some of the hosting companies provides free website transfers. However you can manually transfer the site yourself. Just download all of your files and database and upload it to the new server. Edit the config files to put the database and file path details.

    You can have someone do it for you professionally or ask your host to do it. Asking your host is the best method, since they know their way around the software. They own and operate it after all. You should really back up your site before ANY kind of migration is implemented and activated. Anything can go wrong and you could lose everything. Big risk.

    If you have root access on both hosting accounts you can scp everything over to the new server. Do a mysql dump and scp that over as well.

    If you are using cpanel then it come with built in feature to restore your website from backup, you can ask your hosting provider.

    It totally depends on what type of access you to have on both the server. If you have only the account level access without shell then you will need to download all the files to your local computer through FTP then upload it to your destination account. Same with the databases. If you have shell access, then you can copy the website data from old account to new account.

    Usually, the new web hosting company will have the complete website migration services. Do check with them as I have come across some that do not provide this services.

    And a few will offer Free Migration for your site, if you take up the hosting for at least 1 year. Others will charge you a nominal fees.

    Even though the OP said no backups, if you value your data, you'll perform backups anyway. Way too much can go wrong in migration regardless of how it's performed.

    I use VPSrobots to migrate my website from one server to another without any backup and any help of web hosting providers. Here is the tutorial for website migration, please follow this article.
    Additionally, I absolutely agree with SenseiSteve, you ought to back up your website anyway. Also, keep the original website active for one week at least. In case, anything goes wrong during website migration, the original website is still accessible.

    Yes,

    If both panel are same then there is the option to migrate a site. If you are using WHM/Cpanel then they provide one function this is transfer tool so you can easily migrate your site without getting backup.

    It is so easy by zipping all your website data and using wget in SSH to move your data from a server to another server without backing up. Of course is, you need to have your own server, at least a VPS or dedicated server with SSH access.
