Change of hosting to another domain. without losing subdomain files and settings.

Hello,

I will like to change the Primary Domain name on a hosting account but there is a Addon Domain and 3 Subdomains added to this domain which I have to remove first according to https://uk.godaddy.com/help/change-your-accounts-domain-16163

 

Is there a way I can change the primary domain name without affecting the addon domain and subdomains files because there is an active site associated with it.

 

Can someone please guide me on the best way to do this.

@Rob55 The only way to do this is to setup a new hosting account and then make the primary domain whatever you'd like it to be. Then you'll need to transfer the site files to that hosting account.
