How do I change the friendly name on my Hosting package?

These instructions will show you how to change the name on your package to allow you to identify it easily, rather than just having a list of domain names.

What is a friendly name? Friendly names are used to distinguish between packages, allowing you to name them to something with meaning to you, instead of just a list of domain names or IP addresses. This will allow you to name your packages to memorable, or useful, friendly names. This is especially useful if you have a large number of packages, and you want to clarify which package is used for which websites.

Please note: this tool is not available on any Web Hosting plans purchased after July 2020 or Premium Hosting plans purchased after August 2020.
