I’ve set up a site at http://www.thericepost.com quite recently. I have very few visitors thus far. I decided that I needed a more descriptive domain name so today I acquired the domain fifty2ninetyonline.com. (The site is aimed at people in that age range.)
With so few visitors at this point, I figured there wouldn’t be too much confusion if I started using the new domain. I’d put something on the home page to explain the change.
My hosting service is bluehost.com. At bluehost I created a new folder for the new domain and then copied all the files from thericepost to fifty2ninetyonline. Then tech support at bluehost helped me to set up a redirect so that anyone who went to thericepost would be sent to fifty2ninetyonline. At this point everything seemed to be working fine. I go to fifty2ninetyonline.com and see everything from thericepost. If I go to thericepost I’m redirected to fifty2ninety.com.
The idea at this point is that I will do all development, posting, etc. on fifty2ninetyonline.com.
The problem is that when I go to http://www.fifty2ninetyonline.com/wp-admin I wind up at dashboard for thericepost. Clearly I don’t want to do any work there because new work should be on fifty2ninetyonline because that’s where all visitors will be.
I asume that there must be something I need to change somewhere that will then allow me to do new work on fifty2ninetyonline.
Can anyone tell me how to make this happen?
