We have a dedicated server hosting one website, say and another 20 websites hosted on shared servers elsewhere.

How can I transfer those multiple websites and host them on our dedicated server?

We have Linux, Ubuntu server with Plesk Control.

I created a new domain using Plesk which then created various folders for hosting space and uploaded index.htm and other files to httpdocs folder using FTP. httpdocs is by default where all static files go, as I understand.

Now Plesk has added this domain and allows me to edit DNS settings, in which it has a record type as NS, which I understand is the nameserver.

Do I need need to change the nameserver at the domain registrar to the one mentioned in NS? Or how can we point the domains here?

Do you have Plesk on both the places (Dedicated server and shared hosting)?

In that case, you can directly transfer your domain from one plesk account to another plesk account.
