    Are there any pitfalls, complications or anything else I should look out for in changing the hostname on my Plesk 11 managed server?

    There should no problems to change your host-name at your web-server.
    Normally can this be done by the Plesk Management module at your server settings and/or Virtuozzo. (I prefer Virtuozzo)

    Also you have to create/change DNS records for your primary domain of that host-name.
    - Create a A DNS record. Pointing from newhost.mydomain.com to IP adress.
    - Create a C NAME record. Pointing from oldhost.mydomain.com to newhost.mydomain.com.

    That's all.
