Hi,


I plan to change my website's domain.
The problem is that we already have more than 10,000 articles with lots of pictures and files.

I'm worried about the link of the files.
What happens to the picture, files, and links in the middle of articles if I change the domain name?

The answer to your question depends on a lot of things. It depends, for example, on whether you have used absolute or relative URL references.

When you change domains you can easily add a redirect from your old domain to your new domain (esp. if your sites are hosted on the same server) otherwise, if you have used absolute URL references (which is not something you avoid doing) you might have a lot of work ahead of you, translating the old references to the new ones.
