    Hi all,

    Is there any fast and easy way for me to transfer from a separate Cpanel account into the addon domain of an account?
    For example it's like this.
    I currently have a separate Cpanel account for subdomain.abc.com. And also I have a separate CPanel account for abc.com itself.
    Now I want to make (transfer) the subdomain.abc.com to be the addon domain of abc.com.
    What's the easiest way to do that other than having to download and reupload the files and database manually?
    Thanks.

    Hello,

    It's not possible to migrate subdomain to addon domain through cpanel/WHM. You will have manually migrate all site data from subdomain to addon domain. First migrate your site files and then migrate database if site is using any DB.

    Hello :)

    You will need to manually upload the files/databases to the new account, terminate the subdomain, and then add it as an addon domain name to the other account. I suggest backing up the account before terminating it.

    Thank you.
