    So, I am thinking to rename to in whm (site will down at that time). After that, rename to In order to rename site names, I have to use Main >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account , and edit domain name>>save.

    Please let me know if this is going to work for everything including email settings, ftp etc...

    Thank you.
