Transfer to a new hosting
« on: July 27, 2017, 05:04:15 AM »
Oldserver and Newserver are still existing. I did all the backups and restoration and I am beginning the repair settings but how can I point the domain to the new server? I leased the new server on the same host so I have the same nameservers. TIA

You would change the dns A record to point to the new servers ip address for your domain
