I have made my own website and I'm seeking assistance to change the domain name from http://MyIPaddress/ to Thank you in advance for any help provided.


To begin, purchase a domain name and a server for your website from a hosting service.
 From there, the hosting provider will handle all remaining tasks on your behalf.


There are two methods for changing the IP address of a domain, one being time-consuming but reliable, while the other is fast but unstable. The former requires finding a new hosting provider and transferring all website files, which can be laborious and may result in some issues.

The latter method involves ordering an additional address service, which can be quickly set up by professionals or with provided instructions.
These methods are suitable for different purposes, with the first option being more appropriate for permanently changing the domain name to improve promotion or authority.


Here's a explanation of the process of changing your website's domain name from http://MyIPaddress/ to

1. Domain Registrar: Choose a reputable domain registrar to register your new domain name (e.g., You'll need to create an account with the registrar, search for the availability of your desired domain name, and complete the registration process by providing the required information and making the payment.

2. DNS Management: After registering the new domain, you'll need to configure the Domain Name System (DNS) settings to point to your web hosting provider. This involves updating the domain's DNS records to the nameservers provided by your hosting company. The specific steps for this will depend on your domain registrar's interface, but generally, you'll look for a section related to DNS management or nameserver configuration.

3. Web Hosting Configuration: Once the DNS settings are updated, you'll need to ensure that your web hosting account is configured to recognize the new domain name. This typically involves adding the new domain to your hosting account through the control panel provided by your hosting company.

4. Website Updates: After the new domain is correctly configured with your hosting provider, you'll need to update the internal links within your website to reflect the new domain name. This includes updating any hardcoded references to the old domain in your website's files (such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files).

5. 301 Redirects: To ensure that visitors and search engines are directed to the new domain, you should set up 301 redirects from the old domain (http://MyIPaddress/) to the new domain ( This can typically be done using directives in the .htaccess file on an Apache server or through the redirection settings provided by your hosting provider.

6. Testing and Verification: After making these changes, it's important to thoroughly test the website to ensure that all pages, links, images, and functionality work seamlessly with the new domain name. You can use online tools and browser extensions to verify the redirects and overall site performance with the new domain.

By following these steps and ensuring that all configurations are correctly set up, you can successfully change your website's domain name from http://MyIPaddress/ to If you encounter any challenges during this process, it's advisable to seek assistance from a web professional or your hosting provider for guidance and support.
