Correct Way To Change A Site's Domain Name

Mar 11, 2009

I'm working on a young site that will be changing its focus and its domain name to reflect the new focus. What is the correct way to change the domain name? In the past, I've simply created a new site in WHM/cPanel under the new domain name and copied the old site (and database) over, which was a great deal of work. Is there another way to do it that is less time consuming - without having to copy files? Are you not able to just change the domain name setting in WHM without having to copy the entire site over to a new directory on the server?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: All Sites Down After Any Change Made In Domain

Sep 25, 2014

OS: Centos 6.5
Plesk Version: 12.0.18

Recently, we had trouble with Horde, which I Re-installed. However, since then any change that is made to a domain in plesk (changing mailbox settings, domain settings, hosting settings) All website show the default plesk page and I will have to re-run the reconfigure-all command in SSH to bring them all back up. Sometimes even that won't work and I will have to re-run the bootstrap repair command. We were actually on Plesk 11 when this started happening, so we upgraded to Plesk 12, but unfortunately this did not fix the issue.

We have around 500 customer websites on this server, so obviously the changes are made often and the sites going down on every change isn't great at all.

I have a long list of these errors in my error Plesk error log:

2014/09/25 17:31:53 [error] 818#0: *1566 FastCGI sent in stderr: "Primary script unknown" while reading response header from upstream, client: *.*.*.*, server: , request: "$

But I can't seem to find out if this is the cause, or how to fix this error correctly on a Plesk install.

Domain Flagged For Malware; How To Correct Blacklist

Apr 29, 2009

A Wordpress install on one of my domains was compromised a few months ago, and there was a 4-hour window in which the site contained an iframe injection that lead to a malware site.

The problem was corrected, and Google stopped flagging the site as malicious within a few hours after the fix. However, every once in a while I still hear of people having problems accessing the site, all of them I think from within large corporate networks.

Are there a few common list providers that these corporate networks are likely to be subscribing to? Is there a way I can submit the domain for reevaluation? If not, how long would you think a domain would have to be clean in order to repair its reputation on these lists?

Change Host, Change Domain And Getting Search Engines Up To Speed

Feb 5, 2008

Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.

2 Issues:

#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect
We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file

Redirect 301 / [url]

The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. OldWebsite.com/contact.html) redirected to their new website (i.e. NewWebsite.com/contact.html). Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???

#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:

New Company
Short Meta Description
www.OldDomain.com

What steps did I miss in this transition?

What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?

Can Other Hosted Sites Be Access Through Your Domain/subdomain

Sep 10, 2007

I'm using a shared host that provides good service and support, but there's one major issue I discovered recently:

Other sites hosted on their server are accessible through my domains and subdomain. For example:

Account2 on their server can be accessed through:

[url]
[url]

Host says:

"Because everything is Name-based, apache decides what directory is going to be used based upon the name that is provided. However, because the username is valid, it treats it as a vaild URL and redirects it to your site. There is no security issue, as this is just the way apache’s configuration works."

Is it really normal? Does the same happen on all apache servers? I think SE's would treat the other pages as mine, no?

New Domain - Can't Change DNS, Can't Use Nameservers,

Apr 10, 2007

I'm stuck. First let me explain how my current sites are setup. I have all of my personal domains through GoDaddy at the moment. I set each domain to point to GoDaddys default hosting nameservers. Then I create DNS A Records for my domain pointing to the IP of my webserver. That works.

I recently purchased a domain name from a backordering service. This domain is with a different registrar. They do not offer any kind of managed DNS and will not create A records for me. My server is not setup as a nameserver so I can't do either. I also can't transfer the domain over to GoDaddy because of ICANNs two month rule.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? Is there a service out there where I can point to their nameservers and they will send traffic to my servers IP?

I'm not as sharp on this topic as I probably should be

Domain/Server Change

Jun 1, 2007

Hostzio is down still, so I'm planning on moving my websites to yet another server/reselling account. I was wondering if my account with Hostzio is still active, if I can transfer the domains to another server without any problems? There would be about 10 domains I'd have to transfer from my old account to the new one.

Primary Domain Change For WHM Account

Feb 27, 2007

I have a hostee who as part of an out-of-court settlement, needs to change the primary domain they host on. The domain they're switching to is already a parked domain on their account. At first blush, it seems like it would be pretty easy, but now I'm concerned about their email. Both of the principals of the company use Horde extensively for webmail, and as such I have files on the server for their email accounts. What I was thinking about doing is this:

1. Stop parking the "new" domain on the account.
2. Change the account from using the "old" domain in WHM to the "new" domain by modifying the account in WHM.
3. Forwarding email sent to user@old.domain to user@new.domain, in CPanel.
4. Assorted changes on website to account for the new domain - published email addresses, new SSL cert, things like that.

My concern is in how to move the mail files, currently set up to be for user@old.domain, to be readable by Horde as user@new.domain, so it's seamless to the users. We will be keeping the old domain under our control, but not using it to point to the site any more; I just don't want to have to tell them "OK, to get your old email, you have to check this address, and to get new email, you have to check this one."

Would my plan above actually accomplish that? Is there a better way within a WHM/CPanel framework to accomplish what I need without losing email or access to it? What am I missing?

Change Domain To Another Ip Address On My Server

Aug 13, 2008

i have a dedicated server with 5 usable IP's in range xxx.242 to xxx.246

xx.xxx.120.242 <-- main shared IP
xx.xxx.120.243
xx.xxx.120.244 <-- in use by my nameservers
xx.xxx.120.245 <-- in use by my nameservers
xx.xxx.120.246

When i select in WHM "Change Site's IP Address " and the account i want to change it shows me a drop down menu with the ip's of the nameservers AND the

xx.xxx.120.243

If i select that one the domain in the account shows the apache default page only inmediately.

I don't know why the xx.xxx.120.246 ip doesn't show or why the nameserver ip's appear because they are in use.

Do i need to wait for propagation or is this an error?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Change Primary Domain

Jun 6, 2014

My customer has two domains, one of it is a alias-domain.

He wants to set this alias to his primary domain, so how can i change it?

I tried it with deleting the alias, but i can't find the "button" for changing the primary domain?

Have I to delete the complete abonnement and reinstall all files and databases?

I know, that I have to change some paths in files, but it would be easier, than to dump everything and upload again...

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Nginx - 502 Bad Gateway With Every Domain Change

Mar 12, 2015

Since we switched to Plesk 12 and activated nginx the problem reoccurs reliably on every domain change.
As soon as a customer creates a new domain or alias and Apache restarts nginx delivers 502 errors for maybe 10 seconds. After that everything is fine again.

The system is Debian 6.0.10 with Plesk 12.0.18 Update #38

That might not be a problem in small environments, but with >100 domains the timeout is annoying enough for customers to pick up the phone.

Adding this to /etc/sw-cp-server/config did not do the trick.

http {
fastcgi_buffers 32 32k;
fastcgi_buffer_size 64k;
fastcgi_read_timeout 600;
fastcgi_send_timeout 600;
}

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Change Default Value Of Preferred Domain

Sep 16, 2013

Is there a way to change the default value of the "Preferred domain" option in the hosting settings of domains in Plesk 11.5? When ever i create a new subscription/domain it just defaults to the value of "domain.ltd" and i have to go into the hosting settings and manually change it to "None". Is there a way i can set it to use the "None" option every time i create new subscriptions or domains?
