I have two shared hosting accounts in InMotion and I need to move a website from one account to the other.
They're on different servers.
I have cloned the files from the old server to the new one.
The target server is already running perfectly, tested on the temporary URL.
The problem is, when browser opens the domain, it's still getting data from the old server.

How to make the domain directed to the new server?
Domain is pointed to these nameservers which both server have the same :
ns.inmotionhosting.com
ns2.inmotionhosting.com

Old server TEMP URL : http://biz144.inmotionhosting.com/~xyzold/
Old server TEMP URL : http://biz157.inmotionhosting.com/~xyznew/
Opening the website on browser gets the data from old server
Ping get reply from old server

The new server has primary domain same as old server (same website)

I want to move website form old shared hosting account to a different newer shared hosting within InMotion. How do I do this?
Thanks!

Hello,

Thank you for your question. Here is a link to a similar question we answered, where someone is moving from one account to another.

It seems like you have most of the steps finished. Once the domain has been removed from the old account, the website should resolve to the new server after propagation completes.

You may have to also clear your browser cache before you can see the changes.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
John-Paul
