How to change the primary cpanel domain
This article was posted in: Web Hosting
All cPanel accounts have a primary domain name associated with them. This main domain can only be changed by raising a Support Request through this support website.
Just drop us a line, confirming the cpanel account username, the existing domain name and the new domain name you wish to use. The cpanel username itself (your login username) will NOT change.
Don't forget to make sure the new domain's nameservers are set to Krystal's otherwise you won't be able to control the new domain's DNS records via your cPanel account.
Things to bear in mind
The domain must not already be assigned to a Krystal cpanel account
Because we operate a central DNS system, it is not possible for us to host the same domain twice on our network. Therefore if the new domain name is the primary domain for another cpanel account, or it is parked or added-on to an existing cPanel account, then you will have to remove it before we can fulfil your request.
All existing mailboxes will be renamed following these rules (take a deep breath):
All existing email@example.com mailboxes for which there was not already a firstname.lastname@example.org will be renamed to email@example.com
e.g. if you have firstname.lastname@example.org and you DON'T have email@example.com, then after the change, all of the messages and folders in firstname.lastname@example.org will now be in email@example.com
All existing firstname.lastname@example.org mailboxes for which there WAS already a email@example.com will be REPLACED by the mailbox for firstname.lastname@example.org
e.g. if you have email@example.com AND firstname.lastname@example.org, then after the change you will find that email@example.com will contain the same content as it did when it was still a parked/addon domain.
