To test the server, probably all you need is that your client resolves
the desired hostname to the new IP address.
You can test with something like
curl -i -H Host:host.domain http://ip.add.re.ss/
or by changing name resolution for your browser (for example, by using
your local "hosts" file).
There probably shouldn't be any nginx changes for this to happen.
