moving site from one server to another and keeping the same domain name using shipper

Hi,
I have to move a client site from one server to another but maintain the same domain name. What is the process using shipper to do this?

    Hi cornelius_butler,

    Thank you for contacting WPMU Support!

    This can be done in two steps. You make sure you install Shipper on both the sender site and the receiver site(new server that site will be set in). Once you have migrated the sites, since they will copy the database which has the same domain, all you would need to do after migration would be to edit your domain's DNS records so that it is pointing to the new server. I would suggest verifying with the domain registrar to verify steps for modifying DNS records and also check with the Host provider of the new server to make sure you have the proper IP settings that you will use to point the domain.

    Here is a detailed guide on getting migration started with Shipper: https://premium.wpmudev.org/docs/wpmu-dev-plugins/shipper/

    Please let me know in case you have any additional concerns.

    Happy to help,
    Jonathan S
