You can change the primary domain name on your Plesk Hosting account. This changes the domain name associated with your account's web root directory.

Required: If you have an SSL currently installed on your primary domain name, you MUST remove the SSL prior to changing your primary domain.
  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Select Web Hosting, and next to the Windows Hosting account you want to use select Manage.
  3. In the account Dashboard, in the Settings section, Account tab, next to the primary domain name select Change.
    select change domain name
  4. Select another domain from your account, or enter another domain name or subdomain.

    Note: If you enter another domain name or a subdomain, you must update your DNS A record to the specified IP address.

  5. Select Change domain.

    Note: Although there's no charge to change your primary domain name, this process may take up to 24 hours to complete.
