Hello Bchapp,

If you want to use as your primary domain, then you simply need to reply to the Changing Your Primary Domain email (that i just sent to you through your account). The main issue will be moving all of the files for the current website OUT of the public_html folder, and then moving all of your new website files into the public_html folder. By default, the web root folder is the public_html folder. This means that the primary domain files need to be at the root of that specific folder. I plan to write a step-by-step article on accomplishing this particle issue - as it is a fairly common request. When the article is finished, I will email the link to you and also post it as an additional comment to this question.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
