swap a domain alias to become the main domain name
Question asked by Jon Eastwood - December 1, 2014 at 10:08 AM
Answered
We have a client set up on the mail server under a domain and an alias.
 
Example:
 
Main domain: emaildomainA.com
With an alias domain of: emaildomainB.com
 
Unfortunately they let emaildomainA.com expire and have now lost it.
 
Email all still works as they are now emailing out as emaildomainB.com
 
My question is, can I some how without loosing mail, accounts and settings replace the main account domain of emaildomainA.com with emaildomainB.com - This would remove the expired domain and promote the alias to be the main domain and there would no longer be an alias.
 
Does all that make sense :-)

Hi Jon,
 
As Steve mentioned above, this can be done by modifying the files and folders directly in the files on the server. Here are the steps on how you can Rename a Domain. I believe you'll want to delete the alias first so that it can be used as the domain name instead. 
 
Hope this helps!
