    Hi,

    Currently I have a VPS and want to move to shared. What is the typical process?

    I have 15 domains, each with a separate user. I understand shared hosting has 1 user. Considering that, when I package them, how does one get restored as a primary and the others as addons?

    Any other advice would be helpful as well.

    Thank you

    Hello,

    It's not possible to revert separate accounts into addon domain names at this time. Have you considered purchasing a reseller account instead? If not, you will need to manually add the addon domain names to the account after it's created on the new server, and then transfer over all of the data manually using a utility such as rsync or FTP.

    Here's some documentation you may also find helpful:

    How to Manually Transfer an Account Between Servers - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation
    How to Manually Migrate Accounts to cPanel from Unsupported Control Panels - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Let us know if you have any questions about the manual transfer process.

    Thanks!
