For this article, we will assume that you are already logged into SiteAdmin.

Step 5.a) Click the Edit icon for the row

Step 5.b) Enter the new URL in the value section (replacing the old value), then press Go

Your site may be working at the new URL at this point. Please try loading your site to see if it loads correctly. If it does not work we will need to clear the var cache. You can do this by following the steps below.

Step 1) Return to SiteAdmin

Step 2) Click the File Manager link found in the Website Tools section of the left menu

Step 3) Click the File Manager

Step 4) Double click on the “var” directory

That’s it! Your site should now be working at the new URL/Domain.
