    Is there a way i can convert/transfer a regular cpanel account to a addon
    domain for a regular cpanel account? I basically have a small reseller that
    wants to switch to just a single shared hosting account and move his other
    accounts to addons of it.

    I of course do have root access to the server.

    This is not possible. It is a feature I would also like to see, however.

    (Be sure and add a feature request for it into the bug tracking system...)

    its really to bad cpanel doesnt have this option, would be very useful. What do other people do to accomplish this sort of task? Seems a bit complicated when you consider the databases, email accounts, etc.

    I think this job can be done but requires alot of manual work.Also your email accounts and their settings will be lost in the procedure however later you copy email data from source server and replace it with destination for each domain correspondingly.

    Here is some steps which may be helpful to complete this job:


    1- Create subdomains from CPanel on your shared account for all other accounts which you want to setup now as addon on the top of these subdomains.

    2: Generate dump of your database which can be restored on shared account later but you will have to create DB users again.

    3: Copy all web contents to their corresponding sub domains.

    4: Park these domains on the top of their subdomains

    5: Now create email accounts and place email data copied from reseller server.
