titleWhat'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.

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
