Change Main Domain Name?

I have a shared hosting (Deluxe Linux Hosting with cPanel) with GoDaddy. I have a number of sub domains that have their own websites linked to this same package.


When I signed up for GoDaddy, I didn't think the domain through etc, and I'd like to now know if I can change that domain to a different domain? The new domain is one that I know I'll never want to cancel because it's my name 🙂


a. Is the above possible?

b. If yes, how do I go about doing this?

c. Are there any problems that I may run into and are they fixable?

Hi @SamiJ,


I have already answered this post, please do not double post the same query twice!

@Retired- Please take note that this post is regarding my CPANEL hosting (I am wanting to change the main domain name on my Linux Hosting Package to a NEW domain name which I've transferred in to GoDaddy), the other post you're referring to is regarding OFFICE 365 - these are 2 totally unrelated topics! Therefore, I am NOT posting the same question twice.


I still need an answer to this question please!

Your post reads like you wanted to change to, can't be done. But what I think you now mean is to assign your new domain to your old hosting, and yes, this can be done.

Hope this clears it up for you:


You do realise that we Pro members are not Godaddy employees don't you? A little respect would go a long way............ less sarcasm! I'm sure you wouldn't as a professional appreciate a surly client or one who questions your 'professionalism' because you can't photoshop the rain out of a photograph (photoshop the rain out)......

If you can, please make sure that your posts are clear in meaning.


Thank you, best regards.
