Moving WordPress From One Folder to Another

When Using a Temporary URL

You can also follow all of these steps even if the site you are migrating to is on your Temporary URL. Once you are done with the migration, you will need to change your name servers to point the DNS to FINCHHOST.

The name servers are ns1.finchhost.com   ns2.finchhost.com   ns3.finchhost.com

Once the DNS is pointed here, you can change the WordPress URLs to reflect your domain name instead of the Temporary URL. Both the WordPress Address and the Site Address need to be the same and changed to your domain name.

Then you just need to save your new URL settings by saving your permalinks. To do this, you will go to your Settings and clickPermalinks. You shouldn’t have to make any changes, simply click the Save Changes button. This will make sure that all of the links on your site are now using your domain instead of the Temporary URL.

  1. Login to your WordPress dashboard.
  2. From Settings choose General
