Multiple web site redirection

Hi all,

I apologise if this is not the right place to ask this;

I have two web servers, both serving a multitude of different sites and domains, both HTTP and HTTPS. Lets call them and

We're leaving the hosting provider where they live, and they being migrated to two identical servers at another, lets say and

Each server has around 8 additional IPs where the SSL sites are bound.

As we don't control the DNS for the majority of these, it seems unlikely that I can get dozens of clients to change TTL and A records at the same time. I don't want them both to be live in parallel, and I don't want to migrate site by site and take the next millennium to complete the migration.

I've considered using squid or apache to proxy the requests from the old host to the new, but I haven't managed to make this work. All the examples seem to assume that everything is HTTP and its a local accelerator.

I am currently thinking about iptables and NAT to accomplish the same thing, just simply redirecting the IPs to the new range.

What are thoughts about the best way to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance,

Craig Reynolds
