    Hello!

    It seems we have some problems when it comes to the domain that our WHM servers are put up on, in our company environment.

    Let's say our WHM server has the address of liveserver1.example.com.
    Our development websites have addresses in the sort of:
    1. sellbooks.example.com
    2. website2.example.com
    3. buyclothes.example.com

    example.com will no longer be used by the company and so we have to change.

    We want to change the address to the WHM server to liveserver1.domain.com, and also the website addresses to:
    1. sellbooks.domain.com
    2. website2.domain.com
    3. buyclothes.example.com


    Maybe this is a very big question, but I am wondering how to do this best practice.

    Hello!

    Thank you for the reply!

    Is it that simple? Will it have any bigger downtime (thinking about DNS changes)?

    Hi @MichaelW.,

    You shouldn't face downtime as long as you assign the cPanel server's name servers to the new domain name at it's registrar ahead of time (24-72 hours to be extra safe).

    Thank you.
