How to change the website's url?

is there anyway to change the url of my website ?, the subdomain name

Hi and welcome to the forum! You can change the subdomain name of your website by following these steps:

  1. Add the new subdomain under the “Subdomains” section of your hosting account’s Control Panel;
  2. Move your website files from your old subdomain’s htdocs folder (if it was a new hosting account just htdocs, if you removed it and re-added it to fix the broken DNS record yourdomain/htdocs) to the new subdomain’s htdocs folder, either through the Online File Manager or an FTP client;
  3. If you’re using WordPress or another CMS, change the website URL on the database or through the configuration file so it points to the new subdomain instead of the old one.

After you did those steps, you’re free to delete the old subdomain (the one you didn’t want to use anymore) either through the “Addon Domains” or the “Subdomains” section of the Control Panel, or put a redirect on your old subdomain so that it redirects to the new one (that option is better).
