    Hello, I have a situation in which the domainA.com is the main account, and there is a domainB.com which is parked on the aforementioned. This domainb.com has a lot of own email accounts, like sales@domainB.com. There are also a lot of email accounts like info@domainA.com.
    Now there is the need to make both domains to have its own separate accounts. And the question is: how can I turn domainB.com to a self owned account with the minimum hassle?
    Thank you

    Hello :)

    There are no automated tools to convert a Parked domain into a separate account. You could backup the existing account, remove the parked domain name, and then create a new account for that parked domain. Once you do that, you will need to manually transfer the mail data over to the new account. The following guide on manual migrations is useful for determining which data should be moved:

    Keep in mind if you manually move files from one account to another via the command line, you will need to ensure the file ownership is updated.

    Thank you.

    Dear Lord... My fears come true. Converting a parked domain to its own domain manually will be a pain in the a**, right?
    I'll try this next week when business slows down a bit.
    Thank you.
