    I have a cpanel server (WHM 11.30.2) which is registered as a primary nameserver for 5 domains hosted on the server. The server has a single IP address and each of the 5 domains share that address.

    I need to move the server to a new IP address. Aside from changing the nameserver information in Godaddy, what steps can I take to move the server to its new address.

    Thank you for your help.

    Regards,
    Christopher

    Hello Christopher :)

    The IP Migration Wizard would be useful for this after you add the new IP address to the server. More details on the IP Migration Wizard can be found at:

    Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the response. Do I need to reregister anything with my software license subscription to reflect the servers new IP address?

    Thanks,
    Christopher

    Hello Christopher,

    If you are changing the IP for your server to differ from your cPanel licensed IP, you would need to change the licensing to that new IP. If you do not have manage2 access to make those changes, you'd need to contact cs@cpanel.net if you purchase licensing from us directly, or contact your provider if you purchase licensing from a partner distributor.

    Thanks!
