    This is my first post here. Loving cPanel forum already!

    I changed one of my addon domains as the primary domain. But now what steps do I need to follow to bring my website (www addon-domain dot com) back online?

    My old primary domain was never a website and had no data or files; only my addon domains were websites.

    I tried to google search about this but every post that I found was beyond me. Can someone please give steps to follow after one of the Addon domains have been changed as the Primary domain?

    Did I give sufficient info?

    Hello :)

    There are no native tools that will automatically convert an addon domain name to it's own account. However, the following forum thread includes user-submitted information on to complete this manually:

    Moving addon domain name to it's own account

    Also, feel free to add your input to the existing feature request:

    Tool to migrate addon domain name to it's own account

    Note that in this case, since you are keeping it on the same account, you can just copy over the website data to the public_html directory via FTP or File Manager.

    Thank you.
