    My client owned a domain name with the .com .net and .org suffix the account was originally registered under the .com name but they lost it thru some bad luck, and now they only own the .org and .net names. Presently the .net and .org are parked at this same site.
    What is the best method of removing the .com account and reassigning it to the .net name.
    I tried to modify the account but it says the .net is already assigned and won't let me change the account. Do I need to remove the parked domain first before reassigning the account or is there some better method?

    Re: Chaning Account domain name

    Hello :)

    You will need to remove the parked domain name before using the "Modify an Account" option in Web Host Manager. This is fairly straightforward unless you have email accounts under the parked domain name.

    Thank you.
