How to move an addon domain from one cPanel to another

  1. Download the content of your addon domain to your local PC.
  2. Backup any associated database(s).
  3. Create a subfolder inside the new cPanel’s public_html folder.
  4. Upload the content of your addon domain to this new folder.
  5. Restore the database backup(s) into the new cPanel.
  6. If the old cPanel and new cPanel are on the same server, go back to the old cPanel and remove the addon domain from under the Addon Domains icon. (You do not need to delete the original content or original databases.)
  7. Go to the new cPanel and click the Addon Domains icon. Enter the addon domain name where it says “New Domain Name”.
  8. For the “Document Root” you must enter /public_html/subfolder/ (replace ‘subfolder’ with the name you chose in step 3). Fill out the remainder of the form and click the Add Domain button.
  9. If the old cPanel and new cPanel are on different servers, then you will need to update your addon domain name’s nameservers (or other DNS records).
