Restoring client communications without a database backup

For each domain that you use, you must create a new domain and re-insert the same domain ID into the database. These domain IDs are in the disaster recovery text file if someone typed them in this file. The default domain is the Default domain.

A best practice is to create a domain name that is identical to the previous domain name. To re-create the Default (default) domain, append some value such as _2 (Default_2). After you restore domains, you can then delete the old default domain. Then rename the new domain back to Default.
