Default Redirecting store to new URL?

Hi Eric,

As I haven't started to seriously promote my website/store yet and as you know I spent a lot of time building it...! I want to know is it possible to import my store with all it's settings to a new domain name. I have purchased a new domain that is almost exact matct to the niche I am promoting. I'm thinking of relaunching on this new domain name to make my site more tightly focused.

Basically I would use the same wp theme and set it up exactly as it allready is. The only thing that would be different would be the domain name. Just want to know is it easy to do this or do I have to build a new store?

Tks,
gorman101

Hi

Sure, that's easy. Just change the domain name field here: The Factory > Your Store > Store menu > Basic Store Settings.

And all you need to to with the old domain name with whoever looks after your domain names is do a redirect.

try clicking on this link www.topclassjewelry.com and what the domain name it goes to.

Hi
Tks for your post. I'm not sure what your point is here re clicking on this link as it dose not work? I tried respelling the word jewellery and landed on this site http://topclassjewellery.com/ but what is your point here?

Thanks,

I think, if I may impose my interpretation .. is that nzcid's "Point" was that in addition to moving the store to a different domain, you should set up redirect so people going to the old store is automatically sent to the new URL.

Although, nzcid's redirect does this, it probably is better to do it via the .htaccess so for products or posts that are indexed would go to the right place.

eg:
http://www.topclassjewelry.com/store...5200825158632/
should go to
http://www.truetonz.com/store/tahi-j...5200825158632/
but instead only goes to
http://www.truetonz.com/
