Change a domain in WordPress
The steps below will help you update your WordPress site to use a new domain name. After changing the domain you may also need to update the domain on the hosting account itself.
If you have a Managed WordPress account, then you can skip these steps and update the domain in your hosting interface.
- Log in to WordPress
- Click on the Settings menu.
- Select General.
- Update these fields with the new domain name:
- WordPress Address (URL)
- Site Address
- Click Save Changes.
- If your new domain is registered in a different account or with a third party, then you may need to locate your new IP address, so you can update the DNS.
