Hotswapping a Domain to WordPress

  • Hi there!

    I have a domain name (domain.com) with a website on another system and I plan to rebuild the website using wordpress.

    I have another spare domain (domain.net) the same just a .net. So I build the wordpress blog using the ,net domain and once it’s all ready I plan to swap the site for the .com domain so I will use Cpanel and download the live database for (domain.net) onto my hardrive (the .sql file). I will then open the file up in notepad and do a search and replace for domain.net to domain.com.

    I then upload the modified database for where the new wp install of the .com domain is.

    Can there be any problems doing this?
