I want to start using my DBA company name and need to change my email address from [email protected] to [email protected], how do I do that? www.shapegard.com is currently pointed to www.idealmetrix.com (I own both domain names).
Thanks, Claes

Hello ClaesBavik,


Thanks for the question!


I checked your domain (shapegard.com) and it's pointed to our nameservers, so mail and website traffic will be directed to our servers. This means that you can simply CHANGE your email to the new domain, meaning that you need to create the email accounts in the different domain. If you're trying to keep the old domain still, then you can simply create a forwarder for [email protected] to forward over to [email protected] That way anyone with your old email address will still be able send you email.


If you ever intend to remove the old domain name and change to the new domain, you need to keep in mind two things:


1) You would need to change your current website to use the new domain name

2) You would need to request a change your primary domain name from the current one to shapegard.com.


This isn't necessary, but it's always a possibility if you want to move that way. For information ,please read. Changing Your Main Domain. Make sure to carefully review the steps as there a few things that you would need to change if you were to go this route. Additionally, if you do this, you would need to remove the parked domain that you currently have set.


I hope this helps to clarify the issue! Just creating the forwarder and creating the email accounts would be your easiest change at this point.


Please let us know if you have any further questions or comments.
