Change your site address

NOTE: This tutorial is about changing the address of your blog while staying at the same web hosting account. If you are trying to move your blog to a new web hosting account, these directions won’t work, you need this guide instead: Move WordPress to a different host

For clarity, we will break down the change of your site address into 4 different scenarios:

  1. Moving your site from a subdirectory to your main address
    (e.g. www.my-domain.com/blog to www.my-domain.com)
  2. Moving your site from your main address to a subdirectory
    (e.g. www.my-domain.com to www.my-domain.com/blog)
  3. Changing the name of the WordPress installation folder
    (e.g. www.my-domain.com/wordpress to www.my-domain.com/blog)
  4. Switching your website to a new domain
    (e.g. www.my-old-domain.com/blog to www.my-new-domain.com/blog,
    or www.my-old-domain.com to www.my-new-domain.com)
