Changing your primary domain on HostGator is not as simple as it may seem at first. In fact, there are a few hoops you need to jump through in order to make the switch.
First and foremost, you will need to contact HostGator support and request that they transfer your current domain to your new account. HostGator will need your old domain’s name and the new domain name that you would like it to go to.
Once they have both of those things, they can begin the process of transferring your account and your domain.
Although the process is not always straightforward, it is possible to change your primary domain on HostGator. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to HostGator support.
They will be more than happy to help you out.
