    I have now the domain.com hosting on cpanel1.
    Now I want to move this domain to server cpanel2. I copy all data on server2. I change dns servers in domain, but they need time to refresh for about 24 hours. AS I do using mysql , I want immediately it working from the new server.

    In whm (old server) I can edit zones (NS, A,MX) so, I can point somehow to the new server. But how exactly? I need the procedure. I have the following dns records:

    domain.com NS ns1.oldserver.com
    domain.com NS ns2.oldserver.com
    domain.com A 66.66.66.66
    domain.com A 127.0.0.1
    domain.com MX 0 domain.com
    mail CNAME domain.com
    www CNAME domain.com
    ftp A 66.66.66.66

    Msaybe change ttl on old server?
    What about mail. I 'd like still access it on old server now (I have blocked only http here), and sites loading from new one. How to do this?

    Keep in mind that some isp's, particular dialup and the UK is the worst, cache the dns results for longer then the TTYL. I know last time I changed nameservers it took about a week for a few UK people to be able to see the website.
