Moving an Addon Domain to it's Own Plan

For each Addon domain you want to "convert" to it's own plan...

1. Download your addon domain's entire directory to your local computer.
2. If you have a database for the site, go into phpmyadmin and export the database.
3. Go to Addon Domains in cPanel and remove the addon. (This won't remove your email or files)
4. Purchase a new hosting plan for the domain.
5. Login to cPanel for the new account and create your identical Email accounts as new.
6. Contact us and ask us to move the Email from the old addon domain to the new hosting.
7. Upload your files to the public_html folder of the new hosting. If you have used full paths in your HTML, make sure you change them to reflect the new path, relevent to the new account.
8. If you are moving  a database, create a new one and import your sql file in phpmyadmin. You will need to update the database configuration in your PHP application to reflect the new database details. If you need help with that, let us know.

If you'd like us to perform the whole procedure for you, we can do this for a small fee.
