    Hi there,
    I have been hosing my site for a while w/ one reseller account. but the server is getting bogged down and older so I decided it was best for me and my customers to move. So I found another Host to resell from, and am looking for a seamless way to move from server to server, while not having to have my customers change their DNS info. (I want to keep my private name servers the same.)
    I was told that the best way to do this is:
    1. Create duplicate accounts on the other machine
    2. log on to the old server and on each users cpanel create a backup and have it save to the new servers home directory.
    3. go to the cpanel on the new server and restore the backups
    4. once all this is done forword the traffic for the old server to the new one via the a listings in the WHM
    5. update my name server IP's

    this is all good but I have active site and will have to splice the database of a few if this is the only method. Is there a way that I can do this site by site and fw the traffic site by site? Also so I dont have to create now account on the old server and then have to transfer that site as well.

    Get you new host to xfer the accounts via WHM using express transfer which will copy the accounts and set the DNS to forward after copying.

    ... if both servers are running cPanel 11.23 or later.

    Thanks for that; I did not know which versions that express copy was integrated.
