Change of Primary domain name for SDH & MDH

Changing Primary Domain name on Single Domain Hosting (SDH) & Multi- Domain Hosting (MDH) packages is now live!! The flow is similar to Reseller Hosting and has been built on the same framework.

Before delving into what changes have been made, let us first have a brief look at what SDH and MDH are.

SDH stands for Single Domain Hosting while MDH stands for Multi- Domain Hosting. SDH and MDH are Shared Hosting Packages. In Shared Hosting, multiple websites share the same server space therefore reducing the cost per hosting. This is perfect for beginners and is one of the popular plans that many new website owners opt for. It has a great user interface and two of the widely used control panels are DirectAdmin and cPanel.

Now that we are clear on what is SDH and MDH, let us move to understanding the updated flow:

Before the Update MDH
After the Update

As we can see, before the changes were incorporated, the ‘Change Domain’ tab was not present in the cPanel.

1. Login into your Orderbox
2. Click on the domain whose primary domain you wish to change
3. You reach Manage Order (domain name) page
