How to change the main account domain name


Recommended Posts

I have a user who does not want to renew their domain name but wants to keep the hosting, they have two other domains hosted elsewhere that are pointing at the server and the files hosted on my server.


If I renew the hosting the domain was offered free so it is tied into the package, they also have SSH that is tied into the package. If I do not renew the domain won't the hosting links to cpanel, FTP, SSH etc. fail?


Is there anyway I can change the domain they used during their sign up to another domain that is not hosted through us but not have to move the files.


Anything on this would a great help.

Found my answer at cpanel



1. Remove the parked domain.

2. Go to WHM, modify the account. Change the domain for the account from what it is now to the domain name of the former parked domain.


That's all. Just note that the former main domain will no longer be associated with that account so your email/webmail users should adjust the domain portion of their username accordingly.
