Good day. For some time, I have been using a free sub domain ( epizy ). So Told I bought a new domain. I have configured the name server and everything that is needed I guess. I read an article that says I should add the domain as a parked domain. And I have done so.
Now I’ll like to know, How to change the website url to that new domain? I have tried changing the Wordpress url but it did not work.
Now it’s I’m trying to login into the WP dashboard, but it’s not working. It’s saying " site does not exist". Can anyone please help?
(other information and details relevant to your question)
First things first, go to the database and search for
_options. Then you’ll see two rows,
home. Edit them to your old site.
After following my above steps, add a redirect from your old domain to new domain, using the control panel option called “redirect”.
I hope this helps.
How exactly did you try to change the WordPress URL and what happened when you tried that?
Do not do this. Adding a redirect on a parked domain will just result in a redirect loop.
Things didn’t not work out well. And I had to close that account that just to create new one!
Thanks for your concern.
Did creating a new account solve your issue? Or do you need any further help?
Yes, creating a new account has enabled me to get what I want done.
Thanks for the help
