Is it possible to change domain type to subscription one?
Currently, there is no possibility to move domains between subscriptions, merge subscriptions of different subscribers or moving subdomains to different owners. This feature will be available in the next major release - Plesk Obsidian. To learn more, visit What's New in Plesk Obsidian.
The following workaround can be used to move a website to the other domain of the same subscription:
Let us assume we are moving a
subdomain.example.com to a separate subscription.
In Plesk, Create a new subscription
example2.comin Subscriptions > Add Subscription.
Note: in Web Admin Edition to create a new subscription go under Plesk > Websites & Domains > Add Domain > Location of the website's files > Create a new webspace:
Copy your original website subdomain.example.com into
example2.comsubscription via Domains > example.com > Website Copying.
Test the website on its new location by adding
example2.cominto hosts file on the local computer.
Install the extension Site Import (If not installed yet) through Plesk > Extensions > search Site Import > Click Install
Go to Domains > example2.com > Mail Importing and then click Import mail messages
Migrate all mailboxes
- If domain subdomain.example.com is protected by Lets Encrypt SSL certificate do the following:
- Open certificates Domains > subdomain.example.com > SSL/TLS Certificates.
- Remove SSL/TLS certificate by checking certificate with name "Lets Encrypt subdomain.example.com" and pressing Remove button.
Remove the original website via Domains > subdomain.example.com > Remove subdomain.
example.comin Domains > example2.com > Hosting Settings.
- If it is required - secure domain example.com with Let's Encrypt certificate or 3rd party SSL/TLS certificate using this guide.
