I am trying to do something similar for biblebaptistonline.org. The domain is registered elsewhere and current site is hosted elsewhere.
I built the new site using a DH free domain of bbcwebdev.com and a WP one-click install hosted with DH. I’m now ready to launch the site live to biblebaptistonline.org. Here’s what I’ve done so far. Am I missing anything?
Updated A record at domain registrar to DH IP (IP required, nameservers not allowed)
Added biblebaptistonline.org domain to DH as fully hosted under “Manage Domains” in the control panel
At bbcwebdev.com WP install, updated the URL under General Settings to biblebaptistonline.org for both fields and pressed Save.
Via FTP, I changed the name of the bbcwebdev.com folder (which had all of my WP files) to biblebaptistonline.org (I first renamed the biblebaptistonline.org folder to temp.biblebaptistonline.org).
My site isn’t up yet, which is to be expected given propagation times, but is there anything else that I need to do to have the site live at biblebaptistonline.org?
I’m new at this so any help would be hugely appreciated!
