Step 3: Renaming the domain

  1. Click on the Rename Domain button.

  2. In the Old domain field, select the old domain you would like to rename from the drop-down list.

  3. In the New Domain field, enter the new domain name you want to use to replace the old domain.

  4. Double-check the new domain name for any typos or errors.

  5. Click the Save button to finalize the renaming process.

Step 4: Test the New Domain

  1. After renaming the domain and updating DNS and website configuration (if necessary), test the new domain by accessing it through a web browser.

  2. Ensure that the website loads correctly and that all services associated with the renamed domain are functioning as expected.

    If the old domain had an SSL certificate, you will need to re-issue one for the new domain name as well.
