rah rah on our on our I'm off on our, our on our on our on bedliner. Right? All right around, about barring residence Park. All right. All right now. So that's what my intro it sound like if I was like a zombie or something like that. So yeah, today this is a another episode of the Not another WordPress podcasts where I will be going over how to add a domain to WordPress. So Oh, and let's say you need to replace your existing domain with a new domain, I will show you how to delete that primary domain and, you know, just will already show you that how to add one. I am going to assume you have already bought the domain you want as your site address. I'm not sure if there are WordPress plugins for this. Okay, let's just get into it. 

Go back to a previous episode if you need help to install WordPress., so, um, you're at your WordPress dashboard of your WordPress website, click upgrades and your little pop out. Like, like a drop down menu, but to the side is gonna come out, and you click on domains. And then it's gonna have added domain, with a plus sign and you click that, then you use "domain I own", you search for your domain, and then it's going to want you to add the DNS record. And so what that is, is your name servers stuff. So you go to whichever. whatever place you buy your domains, like Google Domain, I am not going to tell you where I buy my domains, because that's insecure. But I will be logging in as soon as I remember Oh. Okay. So you're gonna want to go to the DNS records. Okay, DNS records. And then I'm still logged in. So, find it, find the domain you want, go to the DNS records, and then go to name servers, and WordPress gives you three name servers, these are your dedicated servers for the IP address of your site. . So ns ns ns Add those to the custom DNS. Click OK. And I'm done. It should work in like five to 10 minutes. It depends on your domain registrar. And now, is now smashing themes dot XYZ. Okay, so let's say you're done with your domain and you want a new use a different domain name or your domain expires, and GoDaddy bought it. And now you can't buy it again, for less than $100. So, you need a new domain name, how do you delete your old domain? Well, you click the three dots Wait, now, you click on the domain name. And you scroll at the very bottom and it says Delete. Remove this domain connection permanently you click that. Then just it says share feedback blah, blah, blah, remove product, removing. Removing, removing, removing, removing, removing and yet on ski. Yes. Okay. Then you go to my sites 

Domain Ownership

I want to make a few things clear. You multiple domains for the same WordPress website. But a single custom domain cannot be used for multiple WordPress websites.

Also, a WordPress theme can be used for multiple WordPress websites with different domains, the branding on the themes needs to change everytime. 

Yeah, that's domains. And now when you look at your domains, you just see the one and you go to that one. And you're done. Okay. Um, yeah, that's WordPress and domain names. Thank you for listening. Have a nice day. Buh bye.
