Setting Up CPanel Account for Old Domains

Good Day,

I transferred my domain to godaddy account, now i am trying to create hosting account for the domain but it is not working.

When i choose the hosting plan, it does not give me option of selecting my domain rather it says domain already in used.


Can any one help.

Hi @javabeans, just to make a few things clear.

You have finished transferring the domain, right?

I'm assuming you want to use the linux shared hosting.

If that's the case, when you purchase a hosting plan for a year, you get a free domain. Just pick any domain, later you can change that to your old domain.



After purchasing the plan, you can change the domain associated with the hosting plan. In order to do that, go to your gateway page, and click Settings under your hosting plan. A modal popup will show up, and there you can change it's primary domain to other domain that you have in your account.


Hope it helps!
