How to Change PrestaShop Site URL

PrestaShop is one of the ready-made solution for creating and managing an online business. It is also a ‘freemium and open source e-commerce solution. This can be installed from your Web Hosting server (Shared) or uploaded to your server. 

For proper branding, using your own URL/domain name can help out with your business. PrestaShop doesn’t provide a default URL but it will ask you for a website address. If you wish to do changes with the address, there are two ways on how you can change your site URL.

Step 4. Click Save.

Step 3. Locate and click on PrestaShop database. 

Step 4. Find the ‘user_shop_url’  table and click it.
