Change Hostname

How do I change my servers hostname? Is an often asked question!

To do this in WHM is easy.

**Whatever you change your hostname to must resolve to the main IP of your server!

First log into WHM and then navigate to the "Networking Setup" section as shown below

Networking Setup


You will now see the option "Change Hostname" go ahead and click on it as shown below.


Change Hostname


You will now have a screen showing you your current hostname (we have removed this in the example) and underneath you enter your new hostname as shown.

Once you have done that click "Change" and your servers hostname will be updated.


Enter New Hostname


And that's you all done although one final reminder to ensure the hostname you use resolves to the main IP address of your server!
