    Does anyone know the easiest way to move a server from a Dedicated to VPS?

    1. Build new VPS server with a different IP. Ask for temp VPS license for the new server.
    2. Move all accounts from Dedicated to VPS server.

    How would I change the IPs of the VPS server to take the IP for the dedicated? (Of course when I do this, I will have a new VPS license in place for the old Dedicated IP)

    Anything else? Can support help with changing my IP for the VPS? I can do the migration myself. I am not familiar with changing my IPs for the server itself. There are probably a bunch or config files that need to be modify.

    You can't move an IP. New server, new IPs.

    you need to ask your hosting provider if you can keep your old ip.
    here is what i would do if i were you:
    id set up my new box with a new ip, configure everything and then when all is up and running id ask them to remove the vps and route the ip to my ded. box :) and then you can add that ip to your server and use that ip for what every you want. but that wont be your 'main' ip..
