I installed WordPress on the temporary URL, how can I change it to my domain name?

Using the 20i WordPress Tools

If you've utilized 20i's temporary URL and would like to update it to your own live domain, then you can easily use the 20i WordPress tools to update this. To update the temporary to the live URL:

  • Head to Manage Hosting -> [select package] -> Users. 
  • You'll then see the Site URL and Home fields, currently, they should have URL that looks something like http://example-co-uk.stackstaging.com.
  • Simply update both of these fields to your live domain, e.g. http://example.co.uk.
  • Select Save Settings.

WordPress settings change temporary URL to live

You should now be able to access your site at your live domain.
