If you’ve created packages within WHM and used them when setting up cPanel accounts, it’s easy to use those same packages when upgrading or downgrading accounts. For instance, if you have one package that offers 1 addon domain while another provides 10, you can simply upgrade the cPanel account to the new package instead of making manual adjustments. This is particularly useful when other values, such as MySQL databases or disk space, will also be altered.
It’s important to note that this information is specific to WHM, which is only accessible to users of VPS Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, and Reseller Hosting. Shared Hosting users do not have access to WHM.

To Upgrade / Downgrade a cPanel account:
- Log into your WHM
- Click “Upgrade/Downgrade an Account” in the left menu under the “Account Functions” header
- Choose the account in question by clicking either the main domain name or the username, and then click “Modify”
- Select the new package from the list and then click “Upgrade/Downgrade”
That’s it, you just changed the package of an account!
