Support » Fixing WordPress » New URL broke my site?

  • I just recently had my hosting company change my existing blog site from a .info to a .com. I did not know wordpress was domain specific? Forgive my lack of proper techie verbage. Anyway I got the home or index page up on the .com but all tabs and months of work are going to the parked .info pages. Then changed history hoping all things would be back to normal, Not. Searched all over web to find solution Im a bit desperate at this point and it’s not pretty. Also, afraid to make any other disasterous decisions and of course the timing just couldn’t be worse as been ramping up for a campaign. OUCH. I just keep getting better at this but geezo peezo this stuff isn’t for sissies!

    I hosted with go daddy changed my domain from a .info to a .com and for 4 days couldn’t get everything right which drove me absolutely bonkers because I had main page up but all the tabs were in .info mode and “parked” courtesy of go daddy. Thought I was going to have to learn sql data base! Now Im laughing but WASN’T at the time. If all you’ve done is changed the domain name then:
