    Hi everybody,

    I am new to whm panel.

    I got abc.com and xyz.com websites hosted on my dedicated server with whm control panel. abc is my dev site and xyz is my current running live site. Now my dev site is done and I like to launch without uploading files to xyz.com. Both sites are on same server.

    So, I am thinking to rename xyz.com to nonexisting.com in whm (site will down at that time). After that, rename abc.com to xyz.com. 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.
    Kevin

    Everything from ABC.com will migrate to XYZ.com using this method. Note, nothing from XYZ.com pre-move will be on XYZ.com after you move ABC.com to XYZ.com. So you should ensure you have all the emails, forwarders etc. exactly as you have them on XYZ.com on ABC.com to minimize the potential for issues to arise.
