    Unfortunatly the domain name for my blog expired and was lost..
    I have wordpress hosted on my own web space. I have a new domain name i want to point the blog to.
    Please could someone advise on the correct procedure for pointing the blog to the new domain name. Many thanks

    Great thanks very much. This has worked for me. I used the 'Changing the URL directly in the database' part of this procedure.

    I also used this plugin to find and replace all the posts, images etc urls to the new address.
