Move domains between subscriptions

This is a feature that needs to be brought to the Plesk Control Panel.

This request has been outstanding since Plesk 10:

This wasn't possible in Plesk 11.5.

It still does not appear possible in Plesk 12.

At the very least, breaking a domain out into its own subscription would be a good first step.

    Dear Plesk staff,

    Thank you, thank you very much for the updates! Brilliant recent progress!

    Hi, I have a main domain and I want to move it to another subscription as an addon domain. How should I do it?

  • Tom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I just tried it.
    Surprisingly it worked like a charm on my 17.8.11 under Centos.
    However it looks as if the target subscription has to exist already.
    I was unable to move an existing domain and make it the default domain of a subscription.
    Is there an workaround to change the default domain of a subscription?

    Would be far preferable to do this via the Plesk web interface as well. Having Resellers or clients do this via CLI is not something I'd feel happy with.

    12 March 2019 - Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview 12

    Plesk Administrators can now move add-on domains between subscriptions via the CLI by running the following command: plesk bin site --move addon_domain.com -webspace-name target_subscription.com

    Glad to hear you are now implementing this feature. Is there already an estimate when it can get released?

    I am also not sure, whether the current manual and cumbersome approach via a fake domain works, if there are no domains left on the current license...

    Glad to hear something is happening.

    One scenario not covered by the survey...

    Subscription contains 2 domains, one of which is the subscription domain and cannot be removed.

    Would like to exchange those two domains so the other one becomes the subscription domain. Then the list of subscriptions will better reflect the business structure (which changed since subscriptions / domains originally created).

    I am quite disappointed, if not offended, would be the proper word, that form the date of status changed into «Planned», respectively "Oct 31, 2016", almost 2 year passed and nothing has been done, except of survey!! I really hope that we should not wait other years when the status would be «Started».

    Because of business changes each Domain in a subscription need its own subscription. Domains get their own Website and the email accounts will be mananged by different admins. Delete Domain, make alle mailboxes and their settings new and migrate emails in mailboxes? Sorry, but not realy a good solution for plesk users. Please implement the solution to move Domains between subscriptions asap.

    +1 ! I run one application for many domains, so I've added them all under one subscription. Now I'm learning that all those domains and email-accounts can not be moved to their own subscription...
