  1. Login to Wp Admin
  2. Go to Elementor > Tools.
  3. Click Replace URL.
  4. Under Update Site Address (URL), enter the old url and new url.

Verify the URLs

  2. Click Settings. The General Settings page opens.

  3. Check WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL). They should be same.
Make sure you assign the license to the new URL from My Elementor.
Adding an SSL Certificate to your website (HTTP to HTTPS) also requires you to replace the URL. For details, see I Added An SSL Certificate To My Website And Now I Cannot Edit » Elementor.
