I have a multi store setup and i want to change the default shop domain to one of the other stores ie the default domain is abc.com and i have bcd.com as a store and efg.com as a store.

I want to drop abc.com and make efg.com the default store leaving only efg.com and bcd.com as the stores.


You can set default store from admin

Go to Admin -> System -> Manage Stores

Click on Store Name second column and you can change default store from Default Store View dropdown.

  • Thanks for the input, what i have done is put a redirect on abc.com to efg.com That does the trick nicely, do not know what will happen when abc.com domain name expires will wait and see – Dick De Bock Jan 8 '16 at 8:01
  • If you don't need to separate the stores by domain, why not just update the base URL on the default store to the new domain? Then traffic to the new domain will show that store. – Steven J Aug 29 '17 at 17:57
  • This did not work for me... have no other option under Default Store View, however do have another option under Root Category to set as the Default Category, had no effect and Still showing the 2nd store under Default Store View.. still trying to find a solution – allenski May 15 '18 at 23:41
