How To Transfer a Domain From a User To Another User For DirectAdmin

If you are using the Directadmin control panel, you may use a script to transfer a domain from a user to another user. However, you will need to have SSH access to the server in order to use this method.

Step 1 – The DirectAdmin installation will come with a script that transfers a domain from one user to another user. First, SSH into the server using root access, go to the DirectAdmin’s scripts directory as below:

[root@testserver ~]# cd /usr/local/DirectAdmin/scripts

Step 2 – Run the scripts as below:

[root@testserver ~]# ./move_domain.sh domain.com olduser newuse

Replace domain.com with the domain name.

Replace olduser with current user name.

Replace newuser with the target user that you wished to transfer.

Step 3 – Create a new user with a fake domain before the transfer, you may delete the fake domain after the domain successfully transfered.
