Moving WordPress to new Domain – Just need confirmation

  • No, if it is a new domain – it is NOT “within your site”. It is moving to a new domain.

    The permalinks will start with whatever is in the two URL values in admin > Settings > General.

    In other words, do nothing except backup and move . . .

    If your new setup is the same as the old that is.

    Moshu: I know you know this staff but I am a bit confused. It is the first time I will be doing this and it is for a client.

    Ok. So all I need to do is change the
    WordPress address (URL) and Blog address (URL) from newdomain.martinprojects.com to newdomain.com.

    And go to the newdomain.com registrar and change the nameserver to point to my server where WP is.

    You forgot the important part: the MOVE 🙂
    If the DB is on the same server you might not need to move it, but you definitely will have to move the whole WP installation!

    (and, btw, when I work for clients I don’t come here to ask for free help… I hire pros for the tasks I am not prepared for)
