    Default Use domain as primary one?

    Hello!

    I bought a domain today and i didnt know that its only redirecting to my site.altervista.org
    Is there ANY way i can use my bought .net domain as primary domain? Using a different hoster, is also okay. Can i point the domain to another hoster?

    The AlterVista web space is only directly associated to the AlterVista third level domain, however you can change the DRS records of the second level domain you bought from the AlterVista control panel, so if you want you could use it with a different web hosting provider (if it allows direct DNS pointing, or in other words, allows you to change the virtual host).

    A way is to change the A record, but it depends. You should check your hosting documentation.

    Hello again!
    I want to use the cloudflare service, therefore i need to change nameserver.
    I already messaged to "domini@altervista.it" ("domain@altervista.com " didnt work).
    But it doesnt seems like they are answering / doing it.
    Did i send the messsage to the wrong email?

    You need to be authorized to request that change. So our team have reply to Registrant Email address. If you have changed it send a request again to domini[AT]altervista[DOT]it
