Changing Your Domain Name

The "primary domain" is the primary url address where your website is located. 

Follow the steps below to change the primary domain of your website. 

Oncord will need to re-issue an SSL certificate for the new domain, so there may be a brief period where website visitors see an SSL error or "Privacy Warning". This usually clears in 10 - 30 minutes.

Before proceeding with the steps below:
In order for the website to be live at the new domain, you must have ownership of the new domain name, with the domain name pointed towards Oncord according to our go-live instructions.

If you recently registered a new domain name via the Oncord Domains Console, this will already be done for you.

To change the Primary Domain of your Oncord account: 

  • Login to your Dashboard.
  • Click the "Settings" icon, located at the bottom of the left-hand sidebar.
  • Select "Domains", followed by the "Park Registered Domain" button at the top of the screen.
  • Complete the form specifying your new domain name and click "Park Domain" at the bottom of the form.
  • If this form submitted successfully, you will be redirected back to the "Domains" admin page.
  • Right-click your new domain name in the domain names list and select the drop-down menu option "Make Primary".
