I would like to know is it possible to have one domain in a separate cPanel account and all the subdomains in another separate account.

Main domain: One cpanel account.

10 subdomains: One cpanel account.

I would think this is possible, but perhaps not in the way you'd expect.

example.com (the domain apex) would be the primary domain on Account#1

subdomain1.example.com would be the primary domain on Account#2 and subdomain2.example.com to subdomain10.example.com would be configured as Addon domains. (Or, perhaps use a "special" subdomain as the primary domain and subdomain1 to subdomain10 all as Addon domains - for consistency.)

    It also depends on limits on add on domains imposed by the hosting company. cPanel lets the hosting company set limits on the number of add on domains. I think most hosting companies allow at least 10, but they need to check with their particular hosting company. Dec 25, 2020 at 11:54
