    First change the domain on the old site to a GoDaddysites.com URL.  It may take an hour or two to free up the domain then it can be added to the new site.

    Re: Changing domain name between W+M accounts

    I guess i didn't clarify.  I started the website and purchased the domain on go daddy.  Then on the app i saw a templet that i liked better and started another website all under the same account.  I attached the domain to the first website, but now would like to change it to the other website.  Thank you

    Re: Changing domain name between W+M accounts

    Each W+M plan only allows 1 website and the theme selection is global to that website.  If you've created more than one distinct website there would need to be more than one plan. If that is the case put the plan you don't want to keep on a free temporary domain which would free up your domain for the plan you do want to keep.

     

    It is also possible to change your theme selection at any time, if this is what you did the site would simply need to be Published again for the change to be reflected.
