Hello Teamdamage,

I will go ahead change your primary domain as per your wishes. Remember that this means that all files placed within the root of public_html folder will apply towards the website. Additionally, I checked the domain and the name servers for it are NOT pointed to our hosting service. You will need to do this since the domain is not managed by our domain registrar. You can find more information on changing the name servers here:

Name Server change vs. Domain Name Transfer

Typically, this change is done through an email called "Changing the Primary Domain" - I will send it to you for informational purposes. You do not have to reply to it, because the change will have already implemented. Remember that the change is not instantaneous due to the name servers not pointing to our hosting service. Once you change the name servers it may take up to 24 hours for the change to take place.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
