    Hi,

    I have developed a new WordPress website on a dedicated server. So the website now has a name like 10.10.101.10. Also all the links of pages and images have http://10.10.101.10/ instead of the domain name.

    The old website with the domain name that we are going to use is still with another hoster. We are only going to change the DNS of the domain name. We are going to point that to the new server.

    But what is the best way to get the new website to work when the DNS is changed? To get the url that is now 10.10.101.10 to domainname.com? Do I only have to change the wordpress and site address?

    Thanks!

    Hi @1988perez

    WordPress comes in two options, WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG

    https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    It sounds like you are using WordPress software to build a site and host it away from WordPressdotCOM servers which means you will have to post your question on the WordPress.ORG support forums for more help as we unfortunately can’t help you here.

    Best,
    Thanks!
