Depends a little on what your site uses as backend, some scripts (wordpress for instance) would require you to change settings to reflect the new domain you would be using.

The base part though is to copy all files in domains/OLDDOMAIN/public_html to domains/NEWDOMAIN/public_html

I recommend copying the files as opposed to moving them directly as that would allow you to temporarily access it on both domains to allow for changing settings as needed. Database would remain the same within the account regardless of domain the site is viewable on.
