Change your domain name

Regardless if it’s because of a change in plans or a rebranding strategy, you need to be able to change the primary domains of all the projects you run.

With ScalaHosting’s managed VPS plans, you can do that using SPanel – an in-house-built management platform specifically designed for our virtual private servers. 

Here are the steps:

  • Log into SPanel’s Admin Interface

SPanel’s login URL is available in the Welcome Email you receive upon signing up, and the credentials you need to use are the ones you set when you’re creating your Admin User.

  • Locate the account you want to modify

If you click the List Accounts button, you’ll see all the accounts hosted on your VPS. Find the one you want to edit and click the Actions menu next to it.
