Classic Hosting: Update--what's the easiest way to update to cPanel?

Hey there! I was hoping to put Joomla on my website, but it looks like this isn't presently allowed on Classic Hosting. So, as much as I truly, utterly abhor cPanel, it looks like I've got to update that hosting. Is there an "easy" way to do this yet? Considering, you know, Classic Hosting isn't technically supported anymore, so y'all should be creating an easy change path anyway?

GoDaddy is working through the servers and migrating them to cPanel - I've had a couple of servers done already - Since I'm an end user I can't speak to timeline etc.

 

The Linux servers do offer Plesk or just shell access if you prefer - I think in those cases you would need to do the migration yourself.

 

Besides for being newer hardware - the servers also have newer versions of apache, PHP and many other underlying software that are more secure and run faster.
