    You can easily do that in two ways

    Either create a add on domain and move files with in the server

    or

    You can just go to whm if you have access to (if you dont have access ask your hosting provider) and click on modify account and change the domain name there

    For step by step instructions check this video

    Hello,

    If you are using WHM/Cpanel VPS, you can change the old domain to new one.
    1. Go to List account and search that domain then extract the menu option where old domain and some of entry like user_name, nameserver, mail account info, mysql info.
    2. You can change here replace the old domain to new domain and save it
    3. Now you can change the other setting In Database files.
    4. If you have use woirdpres framework then change the domain name in wp-post and wp-option index in phpmyadmin.
    5. In this way your domain has changed from old one to new one.
