    You don't, you want to update the nameserver settings at your domain name registrar to point to the new server. (godaddy for example) Your domain and traffic to your site go where the nameservers tells them to go. If they point to the old server, all traffic goes there. Point the nameservers to the new server and you're gold.


    HTH!
