    Question regarding cPanel and Add-on domains

    Hey guys, I'm not quite sure how Cpanel and add-on domains work but this is what my problem is:

    I have a main domain that is registered for my hosting account. Let's say its A.com

    Now I used the add-on domain feature in Cpanel to add about 10 more domains, so B.com, C.com... etc

    My problem is that I would like to move A.com from the current host to my dedicated server, so what I'm not sure of is, if I change the nameservers for A.com to point to my server, will all the other domains still function properly?

    The reason I'm asking this is because the way I see Cpanel adding the add-on domains is by making them sub-domains for the main domain, and also creating a directory within the main domains folder. Such as: B.A.com and A.com/B

    If anyone knows if changing the nameservers for A.com will be fine and allow my other domains to function properly please let me know I also hope that I didn't confuse you all with my A B C domain examples

    They should still work fine assuming the nameservers are not ns1.a.com ns2.a.com ect. The reason for this is well you access the domains via b.com c.com ect. not the sub domains so they are simply placeholders made by cPanel.

    The nameservers are: ns1.webhost.com ns2.webhost.com etc

    Yep, your addon domains will work fine. Addon domains will have seperate entries for apache and dns, so they will work fine.
