Updated on Mar 13, 2019

Rebranding or changing the goods you sell may lead to a need for a change in the domain name of your Store. In this Tutorial, we will help you reconfigure your Magento 2 Store to open via a new domain.

Before you continue, make sure your new domain is properly configured and pointed to the servers of the hosting provider on which your current Magento 2 installation resides.

Now you will need to login to the admin area of your Magento 2 website and navigate to the Stores → Configuration section from the main admin panel.
