wordpress change domain names

WordPress change domain names

Well I thought it was time to change domain names hosting my blog WordPress site. Hello from davidhill.co and goodbye virtual-blog.com So why did I make this decision?  I certainly haven’t taken it lightly.  Moving Domain Names is challenging and requires a lot of thought and pre-planning.  However, I wanted to have a blog site that was more relevant to me personally, rather than just purely virtualisation.  My old domain name just didn’t fully reflect the content anymore.  I was able to purchase davidhill.co when they released the .co domains with the intention of switching.  Now I have finally bitten the bullet and gone ahead with the migration.

A simple way of fixing this is […]
