    You do not change the URL to make a site live. You have to have a host that provides the server for your site to be live.

    A few things make a wordpress site live:

    1. Domain name that points to your server IP
    2. WordPress install and database that is set to the same URL or domain name e.g. http://www.yoursite.com

    If you hanged the URL in you control panel incorrectly that is why you cant login anymore. A fix is available directly in your wordpress database.

    This can usually be accessed from your hosting control panel.

    What is your doamin name/URL?
    You need to check in the wordpress database that it matches.
