    I am in the process of migrating domains from one server to another. I have some domains that are statically pointed to the old server either via the customers own DNS servers or CloudFlare etc. I would like to go ahead and move the domains to the new server and reverse proxy traffic from the old server to the new one. Then when the customer has time they can just move the domain to the new IP.

    Is this possible? What is the best way to achieve this?

    Hello :)

    There are no native tools offered with cPanel/WHM that allow you to configure a reverse proxy, however you are welcome to implement such a custom workaround on your own. Otherwise, you would have to update the "A" records on the DNS hosts of those domain names so they point to the destination server IP address.

    Thank you.
