    This is going to sound random, but I need to find a way to make it work. I'll reference this thread, though it was too old to reply to: http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/main-domain-subdomain-different-ip-addresses-155217.html

    I am in this situation where I need a separate IP for a subdomain. I'm ready to just make the subdomain it's own account, however cpanel won't let me because the subdomain already exists. I basically just need to move it from an add-on domain's subdomain in account #1 to it's own account, account #2. Do I have to bring the subdomain down while I move it? Is there a way to create it while it still runs on the first account? The client is really not wanting any downtime to make this happen. My only other thought is to move it to another server entirely, then delete the old, then create the new, then move it back. But that seems dumb.

    I'd honestly rather just give the subdomain it's own IP while it stays in account #1, but it sounds like that is a bad idea and I don't want to go banging around in conf files and screw something up.

    Suggestions or help? And Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    If you want to created main account for your subdomain on the same server then you will get the downtime because first you will have to remove that from cPanel >> subdomain and then you can create it as main domain on your server.

    Hello :)

    It's actually a fairly straightforward process. Documentation on how to complete this is available at:

    How to Assign Dedicated IP Addresses to Subdomains

    Thank you.
