Are you planning to move your e-commerce website to a different domain in PrestaShop? In this tutorial you will learn, what changes need to be done in order to change domain name (Main URL) used on PrestaShop store.

Before you begin this guide you’ll need either access to PrestaShop administrator dashboard or access to your database (phpMyAdmin). There are 2 way to change domain name (Main URL) in PrestaShop. Lets follow below step by step guide.

Method: 1

  • Login to your Back-Office dashboard.
  • Go to: Shop Parameters > Traffic & SEO > SEO & URLs (tab)
  • In the Set shop URL section, change the values of Shop domain and SSL domain fields with the new ones and Save it.
