    Hi everyone,

    Im pretty noob at cpanel or any other hosting related things so I need your help. I own two domains but I want to be the main domain the second one and not having it as an addon domain.

    Can someone help me step by step on how to change it?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello,

    If I am not wrong, if you want to change primary domain name then from modify account you can change it. If the domain is already added as a addon domain then you will have to remove it first before making it as a primary.

    Hello,

    You can remove the addon domain name, and then use "WHM >> Modify an Account" to convert the primary domain name to the addon domain name. This document explains what happens to email accounts when you remove an existing addon domain name:

    Thank you.
