Changing Ownership of a Hosting Account in WHMCS

Changing ownership of a web hosting account in WHMCS is surprisingly simple. But why would you want to do this? Well, say for example a student or faculty was running a club or research site and they want to pass the ownership on to another person. As of now you  still cannot have multiple admins on a cPanel account (we do hope this comes soon!), so you would have to transfer the account to the new owner.  Assuming the user you want to transfer the account to already has an account in WHMCS, all you would need to do is go to the Product/Services tab for the hosting account you want to move and click the Move/Transfer button.

After that, a window will pop-up asking you to add the user’s client ID number that you want to move the account to. Once you do that and click transfer you are all done. It is really that simple. You might want to Resend the Welcome Email to the new user, but that should be all.
