Change Domain Name


How do I change the domain name of my Website ?


You’ll have to register the new name and transfer all the files.



Hi TomT. Thank you for the info.


I have a variation of this original post. I have created a Wordpress site on DH with a new domain name (i.e., that will eventually be replacing an existing website, with another domain name (i.e. This second site (the one to be replaced) is currently hosted elsewhere but will be eliminated over time.

What I would like to do is disable the site to be replaced, move the domain name to DH and have either point to the new website. However I want the site to respond with and redirect to instead of the other way around.

How would you recommend doing this? Thanks
