This an extension / replacement of the thread at http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/best-way...nt-124025.html
I'm wishing / hoping that the cPanel developers might possibly follow-through on adding a feature to WHM that makes migrating an Addon Domain out of one account into its Own New full cPanel account via GUI in WHM.
As it stands right now (and has been for many many years) we have to do the entire process manually (as detailed in http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/best-way...nt-124025.html ) and from what I've seen posted in that thread, particularly in this cPanel staff member post at http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/best-way...tml#post541785 - it seems that cPanel already has the ability and the preparation to implement such a utility.
I don't expect miracles or extensive changes from cPanel to the existing system, but from what I can see (modestly, as a non-programmer) it appears that creating a feature to migrate an Addon Domain out of an existing cPanel account into its own full-fledged cPanel account of its own on a server is definitely quite feasible.
It is my hope that the cPanel developers might re-visit this old request / suggestion and please consider adding a feature that will allow us hosts to seamlessly move an Addon Domain into its own full new account with the need for any manual / shell operations.
Thanks very much for considering this possibility, it would be a fantastic feature for those of us who have customers with multiple domains and tend to dispose of their "master" cPanel account/domain and migrate to just using one of their addon domains. This would be a huge help!
