    A plugin will not help you here.

    You need to point the new domain to your wordpress server. Typically this is done by adding an A record. However, you might also need to switch your DNS depending on how your domain and website are configured today.

    If you have hardcoded references to the old domain, you will need to swap them to the new domain. Alternatively, you can setup 302 redirects, but that could get messy.

    If you are unable to do these things, I will recommend hiring someone reliable to do this for you. It’s approx 2 hours of work including basic testing.
