    It is possible but you will have to do it manually. There is no cpanel script for doing this. You can do it using the following steps:
    1) Take a backup of your addon domain(cp -arp /home/username/public_html/ /home/username/public_html/addon.com_bk , mysqldump addon_db >addon_db.sql)
    2) remove the addon domain from domain's addon list from cpanel.
    3) create a new domain with addon domain's name
    4) restore public_html and databases to newly created domain.
    You can also take a backup of email filters, emails and forwarders and restore it after creating the domain. Make sure you change the permission of the files after restore.
