How to change the domain name for a site

To change the domain name of a site, first log into the Winhost Control Panel, click Sites1 and then the applicable domain name2.

Then in the Site Info pane, click the Change Domain link.

And finally enter the new domain into the field provided.

If the following error is returned, the domain is already being used for another site or domain pointer.

If the domain is already being used for another site, it would need to be changed first. Follow the steps above to change that domain where the site account is using the domain name.  If set as a domain pointer on any other Winhost accounts, make sure to delete the domain pointer first.

If Sitelock or SpamExperts services have been ordered for the domain being changed, note the services may have to be re-ordered with the new domain.
