How to move whole joomla site to different domain name

All you really need to do is keep the old domain name pointed to the same Joomla install and add a rule in htaccess to update the domain name to the new one. This not only fixes any fully qualified domain names in links within your content or modules, it also fixes any backlinks that might exist from old domains. Here is what you need to add to htaccess -

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC] 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301] 

If you are moving the site to a new host, use Akeeba backup to move the site.

In both cases you will want to make sure the old domain is forwarding to the new one and you have the above htaccess rule set up to fix any links that might otherwise be broken.
