Changing the Domain Connected to Managed WordPress
If your domain name changes, you can quickly and easily make your WordPress website available under the new domain.
Log in to IONOS and click on the Websites & Stores tile.
Click Manage Website under the desired website.
- In the Domain (Internet Address) section, click the gear icon and select Change domain.
Now select your domain. If the selected domain no longer has SSL encryption, you will receive the following message:
The data transfer between your website and your visitors is no longer protected by encryption.
Your ranking on Google may deteriorate because Google's SSL encryption is positively rated.
The call of your domain in the browser changes from http:// to https://.
- You can also create a new subdomain directly here. As soon as you enter a term, the system informs you about the options available with your domains.
- Click Save to accept the change.
Afterwards, the change will be shown immediately in the overview. However, it may take a few minutes until all systems are updated and your website can be accessed with the new domain.
