There may come a time when your domain name needs to be changed for your Joomla installation. Whether it be for your new website or if you have chosen to use a new domain name for SEO purposes. Either way, this is entirely possible with Joomla and fairly simple to get taken care of.
The first thing to note is that this option is not changed within the Joomla Dashboard. But rather is changed in a File that Joomla reads from. You can either use the cPanel File Manager or an FTP program like FileZilla to edit this file.
No, you do not need to do this through cPanel. You can download the file, either through the File Manager or FTP. Once you have the file open, you would make the same changes as listed above and save it. Make sure that you upload the modified configuration.php file to the correct folder.
