How to Convert an Addon Domain to a Primary Domain in cPanel

With the latest release of cPanel, an excellent new feature has been added allowing users to easily convert an addon domain into a primary domain. If you need information on domain conversion, then this guide is for you.

*NOTE: this method requires the user to have root access to the WHM account associated with their cPanel account. If you do not have access to WHM, you may need to contact your hosting provider for more information on how to make this change.

 

Converting an Addon Domain to a Primary Domain

By following these 10 easy steps, you can convert any addon domain into a primary domain in no time at all:

  1. First, log in to WHM with root user.
     
  2. Once logged in, on the left side panel, search for the Transfers option and click on Convert Addon Domain to Account.
     
  3. On the right side, you will now see a list of addon domains hosted on your server. Using the search/filter window, you can search for the specific addon domain you want to convert to a primary domain.
     
  4. Once you’ve located the addon domain you want to convert, select it, and then click Convert.
     
  5. On the next screen, enter the contact email for the new account and select the package you want to assign for this new account. Normally, you can leave the option to Preserve Account Ownership as is.
     
  6. Scroll down the page until you see the Selection details option for the addon domain. By default, the conversion process will select all the data, DNS records, emails, databases, subaccounts, and FTP accounts and will copy them into the primary account. If you’d like to customize the data selected, you can do so by clicking on the Configure button.
     
  7. Once you’re ready, scroll down the page and click the Start Conversion button.
     
  8. On the next screen, you’ll see that the conversion is being processed. The time required will depend on the volume of Email accounts, FTP Accounts, Sub domains, and other data being converted.
     
  9. Once the conversion process has finished, you can click on the Details button to view complete information regarding the conversion process.
     
  10. To verify the conversion was done successfully, on the left side menu click on List Accounts. If your addon domain has converted successfully, you’ll see the new primary domain account listed here.

And there you have it!

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.

FREE

Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.

Firewalls

Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
