Thanks.. I know how to do it manually. I was hoping cpanel developer could creat a script of some kind inside the WHM. Or perhaps someone has developed some sort of script. With a simple click, you can convert ip to ipless account and reverse.

I feel that this is an important feature to have automated to switch an ip domain to ipless and an ipless domain back to ip...

Should be done from the Modify An Account in WebHost Manager or a command line script.

Currently the only way to do it automatically is to remove the account and than re-adding it which of course would cause that user to loose all their settings/and home directory.

It should update the nameserver and all associated files (httpd.conf, etc).

tar -cvf & tar -xvf are your friends :)

Tar the /home dir of your user and then untar when finished.
