Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 7:07 pm

There are a few things to keep in mind when changing your domain name on HostGator. First, you’ll need to make sure your new domain is available and ready to be registered with the registrar of your choice.

Once you have your domain registered, you’ll need to contact HostGator to have your account and site transferred over. Finally, you’ll need to reconfigure your DNS settings to point to your new domain.

PRO TIP: Warning:

Before you change your domain name on HostGator, please be aware that this will permanently change the URL associated with your website. Any existing links to your site will no longer work, and visitors will see a 404 error if they try to access your site. Make sure you update any links or references to your site before you make the change.

Overall, changing your domain name on HostGator is a relatively straightforward process. However, be sure to consult with the help desk at HostGator if you have any questions or concerns along the way.

In the end, a fresh domain name can help you boost your online presence and increase your website’s traffic.
