  • Setting your website's primary domain name

 

 

ANSWER ID:126, 370

Your website's primary domain name is the domain name all of your other domain names redirect to.

You can choose not to register a personalised domain name when you first set up your MYOB Atlas website, and if you do then the temporary domain name you receive when you first sign up will be used as your primary domain name.

If you do register a personalised domain name through MYOB Atlas, it will automatically become your primary domain name. If you've purchased multiple domain names through MYOB, or you've purchased multiple domain names outside of MYOB and linked them to your website, you can choose one of these to be your website's primary domain name.

 

To set your primary domain name
  1. Click My domain names in the Site settings toolbar.
  2. From the Domain names purchased through MYOB or Linked domain names section, choose the domain name you want to set as your primary domain name and click the Primary link next to it.

This now sets the chosen domain name as your website’s primary domain name. This change can take up to 24 hours to be reflected upon your website.

 

 

 

  FAQs


What's the difference between my primary domain name and secondary domain names?

Your primary domain name is the domain name that all of your other domain names redirect to. If someone enters in your secondary domain name, it will redirect them to your website. They will also see the primary domain name in the address bar of their internet browser

How do I know which domain name is my primary domain name?

You can find your primary domain name by clicking My domain names in the Site settings toolbar, and checking the Primary domain name section.

Can I change a purchased domain name?

Once you register a domain name it can’t be changed. If you made a mistake in the name you registered, you will need to purchase a new domain name. For more information on this, see Registering domain names (Australia | New Zealand).

It's been 24 hours and my new primary domain name still isn't active.

If the domain that you are trying to set as your primary is hosted by a different domain registrar, it could be that the domain isn’t properly linked with your website. Have a look at Linking domain names to your website for more information on how to link external domains to your website.
