Keeping domain as the site URL (2 posts)

    Sorry that I had to create a new topic, but I struggled to find a previous example of my problem. Have also checked codex already.

    I have a domain on Godaddy - lets call it example.com - but my WP site is hosted on 1&1. I've set up the DNS so that example.com points to my WP install on 1&1. The problem is that after landing on the site, the url changes to the 1&1 directory which looks like http://s12345678890.websitehome.co.uk/home

    I really want the site to keep my domain and not have to use the 1&1 url.

    Is it a case of reinstalling WP?
    Can I solve it with some kind of search and replace?

    Very frustrating trying to change URLs because it invariably breaks the site and locks me out of dashboard.
