    Hello,

    I have clients that have hosting account and he is hosting several addion domains/websites.

    Now he want so split all the addon domain in separate hosting account but keep the e-mail addresses possibly with their passwords and settings.

    Is it possible to perform this type of action and how can it be done fastest and safest way?

    Thanks

    Its impossible to split off addon domains into their own accounts. The best way to do this is to do the following:

    1. Back up the e-Mail accounts.
    2. Back up the data of the website(public_html and databases)
    2. Create a new cPanel Account for the addon domain.
    3. Reupload the content.
    4. Recreate the email accounts and restore the emails.

    Thats going to be your best bet to do this. Another option is to give the customer a reseller account so he could even create the seperate cPanel accounts theirselve.

    Hope this helped.
