    I would like to change an addon domain to a full account, upgrade it if you will. Can this happen without losing the data on the existing addon domain?

    There's no method provided by cpanel (or any third party that I know of) to do this.

    You could probably manually kludge it, at least as far as moving the email accounts, by copying the mail directory and the public_html/xxx directory, but you'd be better off recreating the email accounts.

    You *might* be able to get the email accounts (account names, passwords etc) out of the etc directory but I'm not sure whether they'd be in re-usable form for a new account.

    You'd need to do this all manually in shell or ftp.
