    I had hosted my site with the domain / (user1) and subsequently need to change the site name to / (user 2). And subsequently remove domain1

    I was wondering if it is possible to to just map the account under which domain2 is created to use the resources of user 1. So effectively I am avoiding a huge migration exercise!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It's technically possible, but not without some workarounds that will probably be more of an issue than just moving the files. All you should need to do is copy the site folder and etc/mail files to user 1's account, remove the domain, then add it to user1's cPanel.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
