I am not sure if that is proper terminology (fairly new to this). I have a site set up wordsofwilliams.com but when you click the about page or any of the other created pages, it re-directs to ericw.webfactional.com/about.

I am using wordpress, and I see in the general settings that you can change both the Wordpress address (URL) and the Site address (URL). I currently go to ericw.webfactional.com to log into my wordpress admin page if that helps. Do I need to change these to wordsofwilliams.com? And if I do that, will I still be able to log in at ericw.webfactional.com?

WordPress generates all links based on the URL in your site configuration, not domain the site is actually running on.

Do I need to change these to wordsofwilliams.com?

If you want all the generated links to use 'wordsofwilliams.com', then yes.

And if I do that, will I still be able to log in at ericw.webfactional.com?

I believe so, but I'm not sure. I know WordPress will automatically redirect you back to the 'main' domain listed in the config. So you'll actually be logging in at your 'main' domain, not the "webfactional.com" subdomain.

That totally worked. You are correct, I now log in at wordsofwilliams.com instead of webfactional. Thanks for the help!
