How do I change the domain name of my site?

WidePath makes it really easy to change the domain of your site. Simply login to WidePath, navigate to the site you want and on the right, add a new hostname, then click 'Set Primary' for that new hostname. This will update WordPress' 'siteurl' and 'home' options.

If you find that your site is not fully secure or gets a browser warning after changing the primary domain for your site, you may have accidentally hardcoded your old name into the database or be using a plugin that doesn't quite adhere to WordPress' rules about how to manage hostnames. To resolve this problem, simply download a plugin like 'Better Search and Replace' ( and run and search and replace using the old and new names.
