Changing WordPress site domain name from one to another (3 posts)

    When I built our WordPress site it was for our sister domain SwatTeamSelling.com. But we decided to make it our main domain site http://www.pancero.com. So that is presently being accomplished on our hosting platform by a redirect (SwatTeamSelling to Pancero.com), because I didn't want to build a completely new site. We will be changing hosting companies and before I do that I would like to correct the situation. How do I change the WordPress site folder (directory/database) from SwatTeamSelling to Pancero.com without really screwing up the database?
    I hope I've explained this clearly ;-(

    Try this link for changing domain names and servers http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    You may also want to look into Backup Buddy for migrating your site to a new sever.

    If you originally setup your site under pancero.com which looks like you did, and you have a forward to SwatTeamSelling.com then your database will be using pancero.com. Once you change hosting companies you will need to change your DNS settings of your domain names to point to the new Web host, who can help you with that.

    kespinoza, just wanted to thank you for a previous article (now shut) regarding site transfer where you have pointed out the importance of updating on the Permalink (just go to General>Permalink and save making sure its the same setting as the previous site and the use of Search-Replace DB Master. That's what worked for me. All the best. Phil
