    Hi,

    How do I change a subdomain and make it the main domain for an account? The subdomain has mailboxes and mail lists. Can this be done without losing the mailboxes and mail list assigned to the subdomain?

    Thanks!

    Hello

    There are no automated tools available that will convert your subdomain into the primary domain name of the account. I suggest creating a full backup of the account before attempting any manual changes. Once you do that, you can try removing the subdomain, and then modifying it to the primary domain name of the account via:

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

    Thank you.
