How To Connect a Custom Domain into Wordpress?

Connecting a custom domain to a WordPress website involves a few steps:

Purchase a domain name: You will need to purchase a domain name from a domain registrar such as GoDaddy or Namecheap. Once purchased, you will be provided with the domain's DNS information.

Connect the domain to your hosting account: Log into your hosting account (such as Bluehost or SiteGround) and navigate to the "Domains" or "DNS" section. There you will find an option to connect a new domain. Enter your domain name and update the nameservers to match the ones provided by your hosting company.

Update the domain settings in WordPress: Log in to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to "Settings" > "General". In the "WordPress Address (URL)" and "Site Address (URL)" fields, enter your new custom domain (e.g. "").

Configure the permalinks: Once you've set your custom domain, you'll want to configure your permalinks to ensure that your links are using the new custom domain. Go to "Settings" > "Permalinks" in the WordPress dashboard and choose the desired URL structure.

Verify your domain: Some hosting providers may require you to verify your domain ownership to ensure you are the rightful owner. This can typically be done by adding a TXT or CNAME record provided by your hosting company to your domain's DNS settings.

Update the content of the site with the new domain: Make sure to update the content of the site with the new domain, like updating the links, images, and other assets URLs to match the new domain.

Please note that, this process requires some technical knowledge and it is recommended to consult the hosting provider support team in case of any difficulties.
