How do I change my primary domain on HostGator?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 6:57 pm

If you want to change your primary domain on HostGator, there are a few steps you need to take. First, sign into your account and click on the “Domains” link in the navigation bar. From here, you’ll be able to see all of your domains. To change your primary domain, click on the domain you want to change it to and select the “Configure” button next to it.

PRO TIP: If you are considering changing your primary domain on Hostgator, be aware that this will result in a loss of all email addresses associated with that domain. In addition, any existing website files and databases will be lost and will need to be recreated. This can be a time-consuming and frustrating process, so be sure to weigh the pros and cons before making this decision.

On the “Configure” page, you’ll need to enter your new primary domain name and click “Update.” After updating your domain, you’ll need to restart your HostGator account if you want the changes to take effect.
