    Hi All,

    I have a hosting client with two domain names - one parked over the other. He wants to let the registration of the domain name that is currently hosted to expire, and continue with the domain name that is currently parked over it.

    Is there a quick, easy, painless way to swap the two, making the primary domain the parked domain and vice versa?

    Otherwise I guess the process would be to
    1. Unpark the the parked domain.
    2. Create a new hosting account using the unparked domain.
    3. Copy the website from the old to the new.
    4. Delete the old hosting account.
    5. Park the old hosted domain over the new hosted account.

    Comments?

    I don't know if I the reason I got no replies was because it my question was deemed to hard or too easy :) Either way, the solution (that so far seems to have worked just fine) was easier than expected:

    1. Unpark the parked domain (do it from 'List Parked Domains')
    2. 'Modify an Account' for primary domain and edit the domain name to be the name of the domain name was was unparked in Step 1.

    I don't think it was possible until recently to modify a domain name via 'Modify an Account'.
