    I have recently purchased a new server in another datacenter... I will not be able to keep the same IP's.

    What would be the easiest way to transfer the DNS to the new server with minimal downtime.

    Should I register a new domain name and have them point to the new NS servers or how could I go about this

    Any feedback would be great.

    Thanks

    same here!

    except, what i'm doing is downloading all my members account files and uploading them to the new server...
    it's a pain in the a**

    Best bet I believe would be the following:

    Login to your new servers WHM and use the feature "Copy Account from Another Server" which is located under the Transfer menu.

    After entering the information of the account from the other server to transfer, WHM will automatically move the files appropriately.

    After transferring one or multiple accounts to the new server, login to your registrar for your main nameservers which your clients currently use.

    Edit the IP's for those nameservers from your old hosting system to the new IP's of the new system. This will alleviate any need for clients to modify their DNS as they're using your nameservers which were already modified. Expected downtime, most likely 24 hours provided the internet propogates the change within an average amount of time.

    Good Luck!
