This article provides you with steps to change the primary domain name of a cPanel hosting account via WHM.
Before you start
Before changing the primary domain of your account, there are some important steps to follow to safeguard your account and ensure a smooth transition.
- We recommend that you take a backup of the website content and databases and download them.
- CMS installations (like WordPress/Joomla) can break when you change your primary domain. Make sure you have a proper backup of the content and database.
- If you have added the new domain name as an Alias or Addon or Parked domain, you need to delete it before using this domain name. Ensure you take a backup of any content before deleting it.
