Hi All,

1) I want to change Primary domain name. My Website Already exists.

As per research I can change primary domain name from here -
Log into WHM - yourdomainname.com/whm, Select 'list accounts' under the account information section, Search for cPanel account, Select the + on the left of the account record to expand your account keeping options, Select 'Modify Account', On the next screen, simply change the primary domain to the new domain name

2) If I follow above steps then will by current site abcd.com will run as xyz.com? OR I have to follow other steps too? If yes, can you pls share with me the steps? Do it required to change CNAME, database etc?

Regards,
Jack

Can anyone please reply for my query?

The one thing you will need to worry about is if your site code is reliant on your domain name. For example, if your site is wordpress, you'll need to make some adjustments to the wordpress config to run properly under the new domain.
