I had to change the primary domain I hosted with Bluehost. This is after we decided to change the domain name of a website we ran from babymonitorcenter.com to 10BabyGear.com. I planned to let babymonitorcenter.com expire since I found it to be limiting as I could only review baby monitors with this domain name. The new 10BabyGear site reviews a wider range of baby products.
I have since moved 10BabyGear to Siteground as its monthly visits grew.
According to Bluehost, here are other reasons you may end up wishing to change the primary domain:
- Lose ownership of your old domain and would like to remove it from your account.
- Use Google App Engine, which authenticates via user accounts on the primary domain.
- Would like consistent branding in Drive shares and Calendar invites, which always shows the primary email address of the user.
It will take some time to change the primary domain and I recommend reaching out to Bluehost through chat to request them assistance to make the change.
