    Hello,

    I am trying to change my main panel domain.
    Not just for a single user account, but the domain for the whole panel.
    How would I go about doing this?

    Thanks,
    Hayden.

    Right after posting I found what I was looking for.
    "Change Hostname"

    Hello,

    Yes, You can change your server hostname through WHM. Once you chnage it Add a correct "A" entry of your new hostname through WHM and setup the RDNS with your server IP so that you should not face any issues after hostname change. For the RDNS setup your will have to contact your DC they will setup it for you

    Hello :)

    Yes, you can change the hostname of your server via:

    "WHM Home » Networking Setup » Change Hostname"

    Keep in mind that you do not want your hostname to be a domain name that you plan to use for a website. It should be something such as "server.example.com".

    Thank you.
