Occasionally, your website will need to change the domain that it uses. Whether because the business has grown and evolved, the project has changed, or a more appealing or marketable domain name has become available. In these cases, your website’s cPanel needs to have the old domain swapped out and the new domain assigned to it. Here at Hostwinds, we have designed a way to change the primary domain of your hosting service without the need for technical support assistance. All you would need to do is follow these steps:
How to Change Your cPanel’s Primary Domain
Step 1: Login to your Hostwinds Client Area.
Step 2: In your Client Area, click on the Services dropdown menu, and then select My Services.
Step 3: Find the service you wish to change and select the Manage button next to it.
Step 4: Under the Actions section on the left side of the page, select the Change Domain option.
Step 5: Enter the new domain name in the form, and click on Change to save changes made.
If the domain change was successful, you will receive a Success message that your domain has been changed.
You can confirm the change was successful by logging into your cPanel account and checking the Primary Domain associated to the account in the General Information box on the top right side of the page.
