Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

Changing the link just in one place will not work because there is a multitude of links across the whole database that would need to be changed from the old version into the new version.

For migrating your site, my recommendation is to use the following plugin:

Documentation can be found here: hidden link

Here is a small tutorial on how to use Duplicator:
hidden link

After migration, register WPML in your new site and enter the new key:
Please Login to your WPML account >> go to Sites page >> Remove your old site / domain from there >> and add your new site >> it will give you New key which you can add back in your site:

Also, please make sure that your hosting respects the minimum WPML recommendations.

You can find them right here:

Please let me know if this solved your issue or if you still need help.

I will be waiting for your response.

Kind regards,
