Target domain and analytics

You may need to update the target domain for your account. You can read more about these changes and other steps to consider here.

Previous website visits to the old domain will still appear in your analytics in HubSpot, and you'll be able to view the old URLs in your page performance data. The visit data will remain in your sources report. However, you will no longer be able to sort your visits by your old domain if it is no longer a primary domain in your domain manager.
