    There's no specific function for moving a domain and its associated web files from one account to another in cpanel/WHM. When you open a new account with your website, you can use a temporary domain name or subdomain name as your primary domain for that new account. You can copy your domain's webfiles from your old account down to your pc, then upload them to your new account. Then you remove the domain from your add-on domains feature in your cpanel. Then you will need to ask your webhost to change your primary domain for you on your new account to the domain your're wanting to move. You can ask your webhost specifically if they do something a little different than the method I mentioned above. This is just the typical method I have used for moving domains to new accounts.

    Oh, come on... :rolleyes:

    He is trying to convert an add-on domain to a regular cpanel account.

    The answer is that it can not be done.

    Sorry.

    And I reckon it's a good question.

    So - can copy over the http stuff / mysql etc without any problem, but just trying to figure out how to / which files need to be rejigged for transitioning mail without having to manually set up email account etc again.

    Any ideas anyone?
