    Ok, I have a few questions about the procedure to sucessfuly transfer accounts:

    I currently have a reseller account with about 30 under me, next month, I am
    obtaining a dedicated server, my reseller account currently has my own custom
    name servers and not the current web hosts nameservers.

    What would be the easiest way to transfer mine and the ones under me to the
    new server with little or no downtime for my customers?

    What would happen to the accounts under me? Would they still be
    considered accounts under a reseller (me) or woulld they become
    individual accounts.

    I'd like a step by step process and if anyone has a website with pictures
    drawn (just kidding!) that woulld help alot.

    I do/will have full root access under the server but I don't know if I want the
    accounts seperate (no longer considered a reseller account) or to keep them as
    accounts under me as a reseller.

    The server includes cpanel/whm free, although the new company says that there
    may be a delay before the license will get activated by them. (12 to 24 hours).

    Any comments/suggestions greatly appreciated.

    (unfortuantely, I couldn't afford managed ded server, so the company would
    charge me per account to move them $50 or so per account) but said I should be
    able to do it myself.

    Also, what about my current custom nameservers, do I just change the ip address
    where I registered my custom name servers at and will that point all customers to
    the new server even though in their own domain settings their ip addresses for my
    name server points to the current site/company?

    Thanks for any and all input.
