How to change the WordPress application domain?

In order to change the domain that your website would work with you should open your WordPress administrative area -> Settings -> General.

Under the WordPress address (URL) and the Site address (URL) fields enter the domain that you wish your application to work with and save the changes.

In this way your website will work with the newly specified domain name.

The same modification is valid if you want to add "www" to your domain.

WordPress is a powerful software that is easy to work with once you have the right host to support you. Before you lose any more time with the wrong host, check out the SiteGround WordPress hosting offer.

    Hi there, when I switched my hosting to siteground I somehow managed to make two admin areas for my wordpress site. They have different wordpress url's and site url's so I want to change them so they are both correct but I cannot delete them to re-do? Any ideas?

    Having a supportive host is the most important when conducting business online. Site Ground is the best hosting for WordPress I know. Before I did use Hostgator but they are not very knowledgeable when having issues with WordPress so if you want to use WordPress I would recommend Site Ground they have the best software and support.
