homeserver.com site name after WHS reinstallation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.
    The trial period for my WHS expired.
    I read here in this Forum through the posts and I understand that by selecting "server reinstallation" this should leave all shares and backups intact, but add-ons and any other software will have to be reinstalled.
    What I did not get is if the homeserver.com site name will be the same? Or, in other words: what can I do to keep the same homeserver.com name? Will the homeserver be affected by the reinstallation?
    Thanks for helping...

  • The homeserver.com site name is tied to your windows live ID. As long as you provide the same ID used to register your custom name in the first place, you should have no issues reusing it.
