  • Changing Domain Name

    Anyone know how easy or complicated it is to change a stores domain name? Can you mask it or is it more complicated than that. We have changed our Business Name and would now like for our store to reflect the new Business web adress. Our current wed address is taylorsnutrition.com and the new one is taylorsdistribution.com. Thanks for any help.

    It's easy enough.

    You need to have 3DCart change the address on their servers, here:
    Domain Name Change

    Then you need to update your DNS so the new address points to the IP address of the server.

        Easy enough to do, but have you thought it through? Your organic search traffic will take a huge hit with something like this.
