Can I change domain names, but keep sub domains?


#1

This may seem like a silly question, but here’s the dilemma:

I have xx.com hosted on DH and wish to move it elsewhere without the sub-domains. However, I wish to host XY.com on DH with exactly the same sub-domains that were on xx.com. Most of the subs are empty now, so no prob but there is one that has a wordpress site.

Must I back this up totally to an offline machine, then re-upload it to the new subdomain.XY.com? Is this the easiest way or am I just dazed and confused? What are the steps to change xx.com to XY.com?

[]install new domain on DH
[

[*]upload backed up subdomain
[/list]

Yep, I’m confused. Thanks in advance for any assistance you wish to bestow.
