WordPress - How To Change The Primary Domain

To make it easier to get in touch with us, from the 24th of March 2016 all support tickets will need to be submitted from your Crucial Control Panel.


When you update your WordPress site to use SSL, or change the primary domain name of your WordPress hosting account, you will often want to update your base WordPress URL. To do that, just follow this guide:


Step 1 - Log in to your WordPress admin section


Step 2 - Click on Settings > General


Step 3 - Update the WordPress Address (URL) and the Site Address (URL) field


Then scroll down the bottom and hit Save Changes


Step 4 - Once that's done, download the Velvet Blues Plugin from within WordPress and use it to update all URL's from the old domain to the new domain
