    Is there a way to redirect a cPanel account from one WHM server to another WHM server without having to engage with the domain registrar or domain owner?

    Hi,

    If you want to redirect everything from one server to the other, then you can use firewall and port fowarding to redirect the traffic to the other server.. However, if you want it for only a single cPanel account, then you may have to customize your installation and test it..

    Hello,

    You can transfer the account itself using the "Transfer Tool" option in Web Host Manager on the destination server:

    Transfer Tool - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    However, if the new server uses different name servers, then you'd have to update the name servers at the domain registrar of the domain name. The alternative to this, if you plan to keep both servers running, would be to manually update the entries in the DNS zone of the domain name on the source cPanel server, and keep the DNS zone on source server when terminating the account. Keep in mind that if you use this alternative, any new DNS changes made on the destination server won't apply automatically (you'd have to manually add them to the zone on the source server).

    Thank you.
