    Take a look at this help document - http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    You didn't move your files, but for the WordPress app, it's basically the same thing. Any time you want to change the domain for a WordPress site, you have to change the WordPress URL and Site URL in the Settings area first... If not, the site will break because WordPress will try to redirect to the old name even though that old name no longer works. That help document tells you how to fix those two settings if you forgot to change them before changing your domain name (or moving the files to a different folder).
