I have been trying to figure out this issue for days now by reading through posts here and on Google with no resolve. I am building a site right now that I want to use a different domain name with. Here is where I am at so far
1. My hosting is through godaddy.
2. I have a wordpress site that I am building in one of my sub directories on a SHARED hosting plan.
3. The site has its own database.
Right now the url as an example is
which is pointing to the directory that my wp core files are in.
What I want to do is use a different domain name that I own and change the url on the site to match. The problem I keep having is the index page will change but then every other page is the directory url.
So right now for example the sites url for the directory is:
http://www.example.com/xx/xxxx for the index page.
I want to change it to the new domain but keep the site in the same directory. Simply pointing the domain at the site only changes the index or home page. I need the domain name to change on every page. So the index page would be:
Can someone please point me in the right direction or give the fix to me. I do not want to move the site. I just want the url to change for the entire site.
