I have never been happy with my website's address and name, but it's content heavy and I don't know what the impact would be on existing content and then there's the social media pages. Please help?

Looks like you got some good answers. May not have been what you wanted to hear but at least you know it's not a simple task to change domains. Although it is done all the time. Good Luck Shawn

I didn't expect it to be easy, I just wanted to know how far the ripple effect would go. I'm still giving it some deep thought. It may be worth the effort in the long run.

Thanks for the input.

I know it's a pain but changing your domain name and transferring the old site info to a new site is well worth the effort.

I recently had to do just that. I wanted a more marketable site name and domain name. I'm so pleased I made the change.

I know there are WordPress folks who can transfer files but I don't know how this works. I did it the hard way, manually. Too cheap to pay someone to help.

Sounds like your business instincts are telling you something.

If you are feeling froggy then jump !!!

I don't think u can change your domain once you have it

Changing url is not an option, but I suggest you do not be obsessed with it. People do not search by site name, they search by keywords.

I have a very specific desire to change the domain and site name. Why is it not an option? I disagree if you want to know about cell phone plans you type in AT&T, or Sprint no?

I am looking to shorten my name/domain to make it more search friendly and marketable on a resale.

If you change you will be at the square one, that is why. Good luck.
