Moving my main domain from a reseller account

Jan 1, 2014 by darkshark
I have 10 domains and I want to move my reseller account to another host. I set up my new account and I want to start by moving my own domain attached to the WHM.  Will redirecting my main domain’s DNS affect all the remaining domains in my WHM account?
Can anyone please advice?

Your new provider should make the transfer. Ask your hosting provider. And you just need to change your name server’s IP  that your new hosting provider would provide you with.

your other  websites won’t be affected if you don’t change the name server’s IP and if you create a record  in your new hosting account for the NS1 and NS2 pointing to your old name server IP
