Transfer an Included Domain from Another Package within the Same Account

For packages with included domains. Accounts with nTLDs must transfer their additional domains.

This article describes how to transfer an included domain from one package to another package, while both packages share the same Customer ID.

The package gaining the domain as well as the package losing the domain must both have the same Customer ID number. If the packages are under different accounts, you have to transfer a domain from one account to another.

Please note:
Before transferring a domain, please backup all website files, databases, E-mail accounts, and take note of any DNS settings or subdomains created under the domain. No data or configuration will transfer with the domain.
