    Chaps.

    I have a development site on my server, which has it's own account and URL. (for testing)
    But at some point in the coming weeks, i will want to make this a live site with a different domain name.
    It's part of a domain host move idea i'm toying with.
    I guess I could create a new account with a new domain name, and copy all the files and databases over etc.

    But instead, if I just changed the name of the domain in the account settings, would it work, once i'd done the NS changes.

    Hello :)

    Yes, you could simply modify the domain name associated with the account via:

    "WHM Home » Account Functions » Modify an Account"

    Thank you.
