Hi,  I have a SEO package with HostGator which allows me to have 5 Accounts / domains on it.  I have 5 on now so it is at it's max.  I want to change one of the domain names, to a new domain name as i have built a website for a friend on my server using one of my domain names, but want to change this domain name to a new domain name which i friend has.  

I am lookign at the HostGator control panel, and don't see any options for changing the domain/account name.  Is this possible through the control panel, or do i have to ask HostGator to do it ?

First of all we need to know about your control panel. Is it something like cPanel, Plesk or Directadmin? If you are using any one of the above, you need to contact your hosting provider to change the main domain. (Only admins can change the primary domain). But if you are trying to change the addon domains, you can perform this from your end.

Cheers !!!
