I just finished installing Silverstripe on my GoDaddy webserver for a website that is currently hosted elsewhere. In order to set up my hosting account, I had to enter a domain name, and since the website is still up and running elsewhere, I took the current domain, added a "1" to the end, and finished setting up the hosting account.

So, for instance: the site that I currently have is "" and the domain that I used in GoDaddy to set it up with is "".

Well, upon setting up Silverstripe, rather than using the preview domain that was supplied by GoDaddy which links to the web root, it is wanting to use "" to find all of the CSS files, for links, etc.

So my question is this: is there a way to chance the URL that Silverstripe uses while I develop the site in SS and then change it back to the actual domain once it goes live?
