    Hi, is there any current valid instructions on how to change a domain from to Where does the domain need to be changed? I note that the hostname of the server as such remains, only ispconfig and services like postfix, dovecot, phpmyadmin, webmail, ispconfig, ftp, etc. will be used for the new domain.

    Old domain:
    New domain:

    Thank you for the advice. I use CentOS 7 and ISPConfigy on one server 3.1 and on the other 3.2. Can I change the domain before the update so that I can immediately set the native https power feature as part of the update?

    Use Internet Search Engines with
    Code: change hostname
    I'm not sure what you mean by that. It may not be possible, depending on what you mean. Anyway, since you want https certificates, using some other hostname and domain (FQDN may mean no certificate.

    • I want to change the default ispconfig domain that is specified during installation.
    • I don't want to change the hostname of the server as such.

    1/ Is there at least one real reason why services should run on the same domain as the server's hostname?
    2/ ISPConfig is a control panel only and services are services only. Isn't there a reason why any of this must work on the same domain as the server's hostname?

    What do you mean? That field just indicates the hostname of the server, so you know on which server you are doing something ;)

    If your hostname is "einstein" but you want to show it in ISPConfig as "web", it might work by changing this field, but it is possible that issues pop up or you end up confused because in one place something is shown while in the other it's something different.

    This is the same question, right?

    I need to know if it is possible and how accurately, because if I draw from the forum, I find the desired inaccurate procedures that someone estimated, as it would probably work.
    I don't need to know if it gives the logical sense of other people.

    On the other hand, I understand that there is no official instructions with proven functionality, so would I have to do it by trial and mistake?
