How To Unassign a Domain Name

Important Note: The primary domain on your account cannot be unassigned. 

Follow these steps to access the Domain Manager and unassign your domain:

Addon domains can be assigned and unassigned from your account at any time. If you have an account with the Bluerock interface, this can be done from the Domain Manager. If you use Account Manager, this can be done from the cPanel. To begin, you will need to sign in to your Bluehost account.

Note: Though both account experiences feature a vertical navigation menu on the left-hand side of the screen, users with Account Manager will click on the Hosting option to access the Hosting Manager, while Bluerock account users will see a Domain drop-down. If you are still unsure what interface your account uses, please see Account Manager vs Rock to determine which step to follow.

Unassigning Domains


  1. Click the Domains tab from the side navigation to the left of your screen.
  2. Find the domain you wish to update.
  3. Click the Manage  button, then choose Unassign from the drop-down menu that appears.
  4. Scroll down and select the domain from the list on the left.
  5. On the Main tab to the right, click the Un-assign next to the cPanel type. 

Account Manager

  1. Click the Hosting tab from the side navigation menu to the left.
  2. Click the CPANEL button to load the cPanel.
