    just bought a dedicated server , with main IP and 3 subip

    my question is :
    -i have a forum running on Vps with Cpanel/WHM ( i pay for cpanel/whm only 15$)

    -what i want is to buy the cpanel/whm monthly and move the content from old whm to new whm
    -i'am not a reseller , just own use thing

    what i want is to split the dedicated server to forum & gameplay mean both will have different ip

    can you give more advise on my situation

    Thank you

    Just setup the dedicated server, setup the cpanel account and transfer the content. In your case, it would be ideal to just use the transfer script right in WHM. Then setup your game server after the transfers. I would just assign a dedicated ip to the site itself and the primary shared ip on the box will be used for the game server.

    Hello :)

    I concur that using the transfer tools available in Web Host Manager is the way to go. Since you have root access to both servers, you can use the following option:

    "WHM >> Transfers >> Copy an account from another server"

    It's documented at:

    Copy an Account from Another Server

    Thank you.
