Managing Your Hosting Account Domains

Date Submitted: 3-24-2014

After you set up your hosting account, you can manage the domain names it uses:

Action Description
Add Domains Add domains to your account to either alias your existing website or host entirely independent websites. For more information, see Adding Domain Names to Your Hosting Account.
Remove Domains Remove domains you added but no longer want to use on this hosting account. This also lets you move domain names between hosting accounts. For more information, see Removing Domain Names from Your Hosting Account.
Change Primary Domain Changing the primary hosted domain name lets you host a different website in the root folder of your hosting account. For more information, see Changing Your Hosting Account's Domain Name.
Change Secondary
Domains' Folders
Secondary domain names can use folders besides the hosting account's root as the root for their websites — you can change which folders they use at any time. For more information, see Changing Your Secondary Domain Name's Root Folder.
Add Subdomain Subdomains are for websites using anything in front of your domain name besides www. For example, in blog.coolexample.com, blog is a subdomain. To host a website using a subdomain, see Managing Your Hosting Account Subdomains.

If you want to use a subdomain that is hosted somewhere besides your hosting account, you probably want to use DNS entries, such as A Records or CNAMEs (more info).
