We have several existing domains that we would like to allow a single user to control (using a single username). Is this possible? I have read a few post regarding add-on domains but I am not sure that is what we want, especially considering these are existing domains and not new domains. Any suggestions?

Hello,

The addon domain name feature is the only supported method of managing multiple domain names under a single username. Could you verify if the existing domain names are already setup under their own cPanel accounts?

Thank you.

You'd have to backup the existing accounts, terminate them, and then add the domain names as addon domain names under a single cPanel account. Once you do that, you'd extract the data from the backups and restore it to the new account under the addon domain name's document root. The following document provides some useful information about the paths where the data is stored:

Thank you.
