Switching temporary domain with a live one within same account

I have a website that is currently live and I am designing a WordPress website using a temporary domain name. When I am done I will like to use the domain name of the live website for my new WordPress site. How do I go about assigning the live domain name to my WordPress site? This is within the same account and not between two different GoDaddy accounts.

@KSinc Since wordpress embeds the site url in the database of the site it's not as easy as just updating the settings. You can find the instructions on how to update the site here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

Re: Switching temporary domain with a live one within same account

I have the same question but I dont care about wordpress.

I *do* need to have the email addresses use the (new) domain name.

So, what would the procedure be that includes email?
