  1. I change my domain name and now I can't pull up my old or new site. Do I need to do something else to make it work?
  2. Okay, when I go to the new change domain site, it takes me to go Daddy. What happened to my old site?

    I'm not sure what your domain is so I can't check. Did you switch the domain through your Winhost control panel? Did you update your domain's DNS? Even if you switch the domain in our hosting system, you still need to update the DNS with your domain registrar (I assume it's godaddy) to resolve the domain to us. You can contact our support department and they can look into what is going on.

    Did you change your name servers for your new domain name to point to the name servers for winhost?


    Until than you can use the secondary URL for your site account through the control panel. Log into the control panel.

    Click on Sites tab.

    Click on the site account

    Under Site Info you will see secondary URL

    You can use that to visit your site on our system.

    You need to update the name servers to point to:


    This needs to be done through GoDaddy since the domain name was purchased from there. Or change the domain name back to if you don't own that domain name.
