    How much of a pain is it going to be if I want to upgrade servers and move 400 domains from one Cpanel to a newer cpanel server? Is this going to cause lots of problems or is it a relative no-brainer?

    Hopefully, your current Server has a seperate hard drive for backups.

    If yes, you can setup the new Server, install the old backup hard drive to the new Server and then use the Backup > Restore feature. This would be fastest.

    If no, but you do have backups, you can still use the Backup > Restore, but it will take a lot longer.

    If no and no backups, I would be gloomy Gus for sure -- due to the time involved for this. ;)

    Depending upon your time constraints and method used, you're probably looking at 3 - 7 days to transfer, verify, and make any required corrections.

    Thanks for the advice. I remember being on Cobalts for 7 years and it was NEVER easy. I will give this a try! :)
