Hotswapping a Domain to WordPress (3 posts)

    Hi there!

    I have a domain name (domain.com) with a website on another system and I plan to rebuild the website using wordpress.

    I have another spare domain (domain.net) the same just a .net. So I build the wordpress blog using the ,net domain and once it's all ready I plan to swap the site for the .com domain so I will use Cpanel and download the live database for (domain.net) onto my hardrive (the .sql file). I will then open the file up in notepad and do a search and replace for domain.net to domain.com.

    I then upload the modified database for where the new wp install of the .com domain is.

    Can there be any problems doing this?

    That would seem about right but you might want to review Moving_WordPress in case you missed any steps.
