      You are correct. This post is 18+ months old, and we have in fact updated this functionality. The text provided should be good enough directions to find the page, but for the sake of customers who may not be english speaking, I will update the images to be larger. You can check back on this post now and let me know if it looks good for you.

      Thanks for your feedback,


  2. I did not registert my domain on arvixe, cause it already existed. my registrar for my domain changed the DNS, like told in your welcome message. I transferred all my files to /publich_html and I created the new databases and imported my database sql-backups successfully … but there is still the screen ” This domain is beeing hosted on Arvixe. This site is currently under construction…. ”

    What do I have to do, to make my site work again?

  3. … I transferred all my files to /public_html…..

  4. I really need a domain point server to forward my new domain to arvixe

  5. I’m not getting anywhere with the chat help, so I’ll try here: I have a domain, then build a subdomain to design a better site without tampering with the published domain till I was ready to make the switch (as instructed to do my someone on the help phone line). Now, I have a subdomain that I want to make into my domain, and I’m a LOST LUDDITE, and chat help keeps telling to me do stuff as if I should know what they’re talking about, or tell me to contact my webmaster. My what? Just me here, no IT, and no clue.

      The procedure is pretty much the same just with 1 less click (into the domain management interface). I will have this article scheduled for an update though.

    I want to change my current domain to whats the process. please help

    • Alex says:


      It’ll be very easy to change this, you just need to reach out to support [at] mentioning the fact that you would like to replace the main domain with the new domain along with the last 4 characters of your billing area password.

      Our team will take it from there :).

      An email should have been sent to you containing your nameservers. If you are still unsure, you can log in to the client area ( -> Click the ‘Active’ button next to your web hosting package -> Scroll down to the very bottom where you should see your 2 nameservers.
