We have build our test site with a domain test1.miracleservice.com. I wanted to find out how we convert this to be our www.miracleservice.com site. I know I need to point the name server to this new server, but I wanted to see how we change this from test1.miracleservice.com to www.miracleservice.com on your server.

Hello,

Thanks for the question. There are a few ways to do this. Upon further inspection of your account it appears that you're using WordPress. We have an article called Move WordPress to the root folder . Basically, in order to use your primary domain name, the files should be in the PUBLIC_HTML folder. The tutorial explains how to move it and what changes are needed. You can also reference Moving Wordpress which is the documentation provided directly from WordPress for this type of issue.

I hope that explains what needs to be done! Let us know if you have any further questions.

Regards,
Arnel C.
