  • 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.

If you choose not to register a personalised domain name when you first set up your MYOB Atlas website, the temporary domain name you receive will be used as your primary domain name. And if and when 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 set one of these as your website's primary domain name.

 

To set your primary domain name
  1. Click My domain names in the 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.

You've now set this domain name as your website's primary domain name. It will take up to 24 hours for your new primary domain name to become active.

  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.

For example, let's say your primary domain name is bluebowlhomewares.com.au, and your secondary domain name is bluebowlhomewares.myob.net. If visitors enter bluebowlhomewares.myob.net in the address bar of their web browser, they'll be taken to your MYOB Atlas website. Once your website loads, the domain name they'll see in the address bar will be bluebowlhomewares.com.au.

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 Settings toolbar, and checking the Primary domain name section.

Can I change a purchased domain name?

No, you can't change a purchased domain name. Instead you'll need to purchase a new domain name. See Registering domain names (Australia | New Zealand).

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

If you've set a linked domain name as your primary domain name, you may need to check whether this domain name is linked properly. For more information about how to link a domain name, see Linking domain names to your website.
