    Dear All

    I'm new with web server and especially WHM.
    I have a legacy server that contains
    user: UserX
    domain: DomainX
    subdomain: DomainY
    As time goes by, subdomain DomainY becomes a very complex site and we decided to split DomainY into a new account UserY and making DomainY it's domain name.

    The problem is I can't make DomainY as UserY's domain as long as I still have DomainY as UserX's sub domain.

    Question:
    What is the best way doing this split process with as little down time as possible?
    Should I create an account UserY with (temporary) domain name DomainY2, setup everything, and test it. After everything works, drop DomainY from UserX and rename DomainY2 to DomainY? And is it possible and harmless?

    Any other ideas welcome

    my best regards

    You are spot on. It's the correct way actually and harmless.
