    We have a account configured under whm with url www.my-domain.com and running fine since last 1 month, however, we need to change the domain name to www.mydomain.net

    Is it possible to just rename the URL my-domain.com to mydomain.net under account settings ?
    Or we have to make some additional changes ?

    From research i came accross this issues
    I have to make the changes asap to an existing domain without any glitches.
    We have our forums configured on olddomain.com which needs to be configured on a newdomain.net


    Regards,

    follow this tree:

    Main >> Account Information >> List Accounts

    then click on the little pen and paper image next to the users username.

    This is for newer versions of WHM.

    will have i have following problems ?

    - The old domain is not removed from the list of local domains.
    - Other references to the old domain remain in some configuration files under /etc. Try grepping recursively from there for the old name.
    - The subdirectory where mail accounts are stored (under /home/username/mail) is not renamed with the new domain name.

    Regards,
