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.

You can change your primary domain name at any time. For example, 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.

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.
