    Hello ,

    I am about to transfer a website to my cPanel server. I have copied the account to the server, now what remains is to move the domain name. I want to transfer the domain and point it to my server's nameservers. Do you have any tips for completing this process with minimal downtime?

    Is it better to have the transferred domain pointing to the original name server before changing to our own name server maybe over the weekend?

    I can explain more if this is unclear.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    You can set the A record for the domain as per the new server ip on old server, so that domain names will resolve from the new server within a coupe of hours and you won't face any down time in the nameserver propagation time ....
