    I need to set my hostname. Currently its "" I should go to Home »Networking Setup »Change Hostname And change it to something like "" Is that correct? Is there anything else that needs to be done? I have read that I may get notices that I need to go to Manage Service Certificates. I would just click reset on each one? Then reboot. Will this change affect my SSL I use for eCommerce?

    Hello :)

    Yes, you can utilize the "Change Hostname" option in Web Host Manager. You can use the "Reset SSL" option if it prompts you to update the service SSL certificates. This is for the services other than Apache, so it won't change anything related to your website itself. You will not have to reboot your server.

    Thank you.
