[How to] Change the main website on a subscription?

Applicable to:

  • Plesk

Question

How can I change the main website on a subscription?

Resolution

Each subscription in the Plesk is referred to by the domain name of the first website created under that subscription. The first website is used as the main domain on the subscription. Its virtual host directory is used for the document root of additional domains on the webspace.

It is not possible to set up an additional website as the main website on the subscription. The main website on the subscription cannot be deleted or replaced with another domain.

However, if you want to change the main domain on the webspace, you can rename it:

Plesk 11.5 and above

  1. Go to Home > Subscriptions > subscription_name > Websites & Domains > main_domain_name
  2. Click on Hosting Settings tab and specify a new name for the domain.

Plesk 11.0 and below

  1. Go to Home > Subscriptions > subscription_name > Websites & Domains
  2. Click on the main domain and specify a new name for the domain.

Note that the permission "Domain creation" should be enabled on the subscription. The customer cannot rename this domain without this permission.
