You can change the domain name associated with a particular site. Note that other site-related usernames, path to root, secondary URLs, etc. will not
change when you change the domain name
for the site.
If you have not yet registered the new domain name, you can do so in Control Panel
Note: If you wish to make a domain that is currently being used as a domain pointer your primary domain, you must delete the domain pointer before performing the domain name change, or the name change will fail.
To change the domain name for a site, log in to the WinHost Control Panel
and click the Sites
tab and then the Manage
link to get to the Site Info page. At the bottom of the Site Info section you will find the Change Domain
Simply enter the new domain name in the www
field and click the Change
button and the change will be made.
If you registered the original domain name (the one you are replacing) with us when you created the site, the domain will remain available for use in the Domain List
for the remainder of the registration period.
If you registered the new domain somewhere other than WinHost, be sure to update the domain's name servers to point to your site here. You may also want to change the technical contact to use our information, though that change is optional.
