    I currently have a website on GoDaddy and have created a website with wordpress on Host gator. I would like to cancel my subscription with GoDaddy, thereby un-registering my domain name, and change my current wordpress site's domain on host gator to a new one. The wordpress domain example is http://www.exampledev.com. I want to change it to http://www.example.com, which is currently registered to GoDaddy. Not knowing much HTML, would it just be easier to rebuild my wordpress site from scratch after un-registering the old domain?

    Take a read through Changing The Site URL and Moving WordPress pages in the Codex if you haven't already.

    I've also used this Search and Replace tool from Interconnect/it in the past too which is handy, but it's powerful and you really should know what you're doing before using it. Also be sure to delete it when finished if you do use it.
