Could you help me do this? I would also like visits to (the current domain on my hosting plan) to redirect to

Hi Sam,

Thank you for your question about changing the primary domain name on your account. Please review our support article regarding making that change so that you will understand how this will affect your account. Once you're ready to make that change, please send an email to with the following information:

  • Your username or current primary domain name

  • For security purposes, either the last 4 digits of the current credit card on file or your current AMP password.

  • The domain name you would like set as the new primary domain

Once your primary domain name is changed, you can then set up back in as an Addon domain and create a 301 redirect through cPanel to redirect visitors to

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
