After setting up MultiDomain and Plugins, could I then Change the Domain name I set everything up on

If I setup a Multi-Domain and set it up on and later decide to change the company name to so that plugins such as blogs directory, Members Directory, Pro-Sites, and WHMCS now work for/Tied to

What would I need to do?

    Sorry, just incase I wasint clear.
    I setup a Multi-Site with all of's plugins, on the company's Domain-Name.
    Could I leave the Multi-Site the way it is, but only change the Domain Name to a different company name?

    Hey there.

    The first thing I would do is dump the DB then use a find and replace tool to replace all the TLDs with the new one.

    Then import the DB back.

    If you have caching plugins enabled then please disable them, also clear your browser cache as well.

    Check your wp-config.php file for any constants like:

    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '' );

    You shouldn't have any other hardcoded links from plugins, but sitemap type plugins might need flushing.

    Hope this helps.

    Take care.

    There must be an easier way?

    network: Settings>Multi-Domain add "" make that public and then make "" private.

    now I put up my pricing, hosting and registration on "" and it will be as if I setup a multi-domain install for that domain instead of the old one.

    am I correct in my thinking?

    Thats not changing the Domain name, thats adding another one. You originally asked "After setting up MultiDomain and Plugins, could I then Change the Domain name I set everything up on".

    Pro Sites would still function on the main site.

    The main install would still be the main domain.

    If thats fine with you, then using Multi Domains would be fine. Blog ID 1 would still be the original domain though.

    Take care.
