Changing ISP(Need help)

Postby sniperscope » 2011/11/24 03:40:04

Hello.
I am not sure if here is right place since my question has multiple requests.

I am going to change my ISP with different provider and of-course i will have new IP block new ISP username, new Passowrd...etc.
And i have many customers hosting their homepages in my servers.

Where do i have to start to change?
So far, i made a plan something like.

1 - Change Hostname, IP addresses of servers
2 - Restart all servers.
3 - While they are rebooting change ISP information in router.
4 - Change NS ip addresses into new one in my domain registrar.

Are those steps correct?
If not, then please guide me to correct path.

How long does it take to access servers again?

I really appreciate for any information.
I am having a lot of stressful times when i am thinking about this. Because i have too many customers in servers.

Regards

You picked a US 4day weekend to ask your question.

Your new ISP will provide a new router.
Configure the port forwarding on the new router to match the old.

If there is a way to know who has viewed a thread I have not discovered it. Does one need a sniperscope? :-P

Hope you can understand that you are not paying for support nor is there a paid support infrastructure for CentOS. The cost of M$ or RHEL includes support. Whether or not it is cost-effective, or the virtues of one paid support provider versus another may be a subject of debate, but complaining about the timeliness of unpaid support will not get you much sympathy nor encourage others to provide it.

For more help you will need to provide more information about your situation and requirements in a smart question.

In any case, reboots should not be required for a decent OS. A restart of the network services, after changing the configuration, should suffice if the change-over is well-planned and executed. If DHCP is in use at all levels it should be particularly transparent. I'm sure your (presumably paying) customers will appreciate a minimal interruption of services during the transition.
