    Hello, yes I've read some of this in the forum, but it seems harder than I expected.
    I'm going to change from one server to another, and I have three accounts. The old and new server have Cpanel.

    How is it done?
    1- Using the transefrence tool? I think that this is the best easy an fast option. Correct?
    2- Performing a complete backup and restoring it?
    3- Make copies of each account and restore it?

    The ip of new server is different. The option one can configure the new server ip automatically?

    At first it does not seem complicated, but I do not want to have problems.

    Many thanks for your support.

    Hello,

    I recommend using the "WHM >> Transfer Tool" feature on the new server to copy over the accounts. We provide a step-by-step guide on this at:

    How to Move All cPanel Accounts from One Server to Another - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Note you can ignore the steps related to the IP address transfer if you are using a new IP address. The new IP address is automatically configured for the accounts upon transfer. You just need to ensure the name server IP addresses are updated if those are changing:

    How to Set Up Nameservers in a cPanel Environment - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    Right! Easy transfer!!! I will do.

    No, the server is in the same registrant. Only update the server.

    If you use custom name servers with IP addresses associated with the old cPanel server, remember to update the name server IP addresses at the domain registrar.

    Thank you.
