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:
http://kb.parallels.com/en/113938

This wasn't possible in Plesk 11.5.
http://kb.parallels.com/en/121606

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.

I cannot move domain to another subscription
move webspaces
move a domain within a multi-domain subscription
multi-domain subscription
migration manager
transfer a domain
separate subscription
split subscription
break out domain from subscription

Good news everyone! An ability to move additional Plesk domain via Plesk UI is now available in Plesk Obsidian preview: https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/onyx/change-log/#179-preview14

We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality and kindly ask you to share your opinion here: https://pt-research.typeform.com/to/fz3KnI.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi ZB, looking at your survey, for question 2 where is the 'all of the above' option. I've had cases for all of them.

    In regards to importance is 1 = high and 5 = low?

    am i missing something?

    click customers
    click customername that holds the domain you want to move
    click subscriptions tab
    choose domain
    click change subscriber
    choose the new subscriber
    see if values are met
    click Finish

    the domain is moved to another subscription. Isnt that moving 1 domain to another owner (customer), or im i missing the plot here?

    A Domain moving expl. 1 or 2 domains of 20 domains from one owner to an other owner is a normal thing, but only plesk will not allowed! Where is the innovation of Plesk, when they now, that this feature many years is not exists?

    Yeah wow, I have three things we bump into, all related to this strict Subscription nonsense:
    - Can't make an Alias the Main domain for websites or mail within any subscription, or the other way around.
    - Can't move domains or alias domains to another Subscription. Can't move the domain's mail users or settings or content between Subscriptions.
    - Can't create LetsEncrypt certs for any of the Alias domains, not even while they're not even redirecting to the Main domain.

    That's all just, well, stupid coding design. I can even do all these with webmin/virtualmin. And I really wonder why we even went with plesk/odin for about 80 of our customers. I wasn't there when they made the choice. Obviously.

    @Ludovic,
    We can assure that the item is not forgotten and stays high in our backlog. But the capacity is finite and at this moment there are 4 higher ranked requests to take care about - so while I personally regret for your pain in regards of this function, we shall also respect votes of a larger group.

    > Why do we have uservoice if Plesk is not listening?
    With all due respect to your personal frustration, this statement is totally unfair: 123 requests have been delivered since the uservoice had been launched. That's something.

    15 months later and still nothing!!!
    I am quite pissed off that I have chosen PLESK - Any open-source solution would have already proposed a solution!

    I am paying for Plesk Web Pro Edition license, can anybody explain why is it so hard to add such a basic functionality??

  • sohail commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    come on guys... how come this is still not possible? it's 2016!
    this is such a basic, simple feature.

  • Chris Edwards commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Is changing cl_id in the domains table the only thing that needs to be done here? I've done that with a few now with no side effects but would like confirmation.

  • Marco Marsala commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    What are you all saying? Moving a domain between subscriptions won't involve any path change! Subscriptions are just a way to organize domains in Plesk GUI, they aren't backed by anything in the server configuration.

    For ex.: domain xyz.com may be switched from subscription A (customer A) to subscription B (customer B) but the URL will always be www.xyz.com, mails @xyz.com and file path /var/www/vhosts/xyz.com

    Just need a button "Move domain" like the already present button "Move database"... It is easy as changing a foreign key in 'psa' database.
