Change Hostname

The Change Hostname option enables you to change the hostname of your server. It is important to choose a hostname that will not be used for any account,and the hostname must be socially acceptable, as it will appear in all mail headers. The hostname must be a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name). All valid hostnames must have at least 2 dots in them, for example

WebHost Manager automatically generates 10 random hostnames based on your current hostname as samples which you can use.

NOTE: Your hostname should be a Fully Qualified Domain Name that will not be used elsewhere on the server. You should never set your hostname to a name that is already used (www, ftp, mail, etc) or to the name of an account on the server (
