    Hello :)

    You can modify the domain name for the account to your own preference via:

    "WHM Home >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account"

    Ensure you update the "A" record for the new domain name at your DNS hosting provider so it points to the cPanel server. If you are only seeking to update the DNS temporarily, you can simply modify the hosts file on your own computer:

    Hosts File

    Thank you.
