    Is it possible to change a domain name for a user hosting account, I have someone who wants to swap domain names on their current account. Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    It can be done in WHM if you have access to it.

    Login to WHM the in the left menu under Account functions > Modify an Account

    Choose the account you want to modify it's domain name in the list provided and click Modify. You will then be able to modify the domain name in the field Domain and click save.

    Regards,

    By looking at that screenshot, I notice you only have reseller access to the server. It appears your hosting provider has not enabled this functionality for your reseller account so you will need to have them do this for you.
