How do I change my main domain name?

We have created a feature to change your main domain name automatically without contacting support. You can do so by logging into our billing control panel at https://billing.stablehost.com.

 

  • To login, click on 'Client Area'
  • Click on 'My Services'
  • Modify the plan you want to modify and click 'View Details'
  • Click on the 'Change Domain Name' button under the Management tab.

You already have the domain as an Add-On domain.

If the domain you want to use as main domain is already added as an Add-On domain, then you have to remove the Add-On domain first, if you don't do this, you will get an error because you cannot set a new primary domain if that domain is already in use in our systems.
  1. Back up your Add-On domain's public_html contents, as a safety measure.
  2. In cPanel, remove the Add-On domain, this won't delete any public_html files.
  3. Follow the instructions above to change the main domain.
  4. Using your favorite file manager, remove the files in public_html and then move or upload the add-on domain's public_html files to your public_html root folder.
