Changing NOC's

I am so fed up with Burst/Nocster, I am willing to cut my losses (setup fees, etc), and move to another NOC.

I only have about 15 accounts on a Linux server with WHM/CPanel.

Can anyone tell me what would be involved in moving those 15 clients to another CPanel server at another NOC? Is it possible to do smooth transition with no down time? How would one handle the Name Server that are entered on all the client's domains? Would those all need to be changed? (they are based on my domain and not NOC's).

Any information I can get from you gurus and others who have done something like that in the past would be gratly appreciated.

Its real easy, if you have root access on both servers, which i presume you do.

Use the multiple account copy function in WHM to select your accounts you want to move over. It will automate the whole process for you.

You shouldnt need to change any of your customers nameservers at their registrars, as they will be pointing to your nameservers, and if that has moved over to the new server along with their accounts then it should all be fine and dandy.

To move your nameservers, just change your IPs of and to be the new IP's.

NOTE: This will probably want to be the last thing you do. Move the accounts/files first.

Make sure you have your new name servers ips setup an working on the new server before you change your ns ips at your domain registra.

Its a good idea to go through and check every account that you have moved over from the old server that there DNS is setup correct also

Good luck and kind regards

move to another NOC
Are you talking about a new provider/datacenter?
