    First, change the two URL values in Settings/General to http://creativewebbiz.com

    Then, move all of the files to the directory for the creativewebbiz.com parked domain. You won’t need to alter the database.

    thanks for the help 🙂

    my host suggested to just change my primary domain from Kabai33 to CreativeWebBiz and make http://kabai33.com a parked domain. That way CreativeWebBiz.com would point to my public-html directory

    It sounds good to me because it does not involve moving any files but does it effect Google rankings? or are there other reasons not to do this?

    thanks again

    Yes, you can do that, just make sure that you change the two URLs at Settings/General first.

    Unfortunately, Google’s page rank is tied to the domain, so you’ll be basically starting over.

    Ok, I did it and it looks like it all worked out… sigh of relief!

    Thanks a lot for the help!
