I started out my website using WordPress on a subdomain, but now I want to move it to a root domain. Is there a way to do this with WordPress?

I have researched this question a lot and I have come up with the following instructions. First step is move the WordPress install to the root directory. Once you have done this onto the next step. Now you have to keep the WordPress install in the subdomain folder. This is a must. Now rewrite the URL's to display them from the root. So far so good. Last step we are almost finished use one of the plugins mentioned in steps above.to "migrate" the dev site to the root directory. Once you have completed this delete the subdomain. Good luck I hope this helps you.
