Change of Domain

Hi Guys 

 

I recently changed my domain name. I want to carry over the history of data an dpage views on my previous domain to the new one. Should I simply update the new domain in Admin and assume that the data history will be carried forward?

 

Is there any other step?

Just change the domain name in admin settings.

All the past data will be as it is.

Make sure analytics code is working on the site.

You can easily debug on the website with GA debugger:

You can check in chrome, console tab with 'Preserve log' turned ON.

Yep update domain name in admin. And of course ensure the tracking code is properly installed on the new site.
