    Shouldn't cause any problems, no. We changed KH-MediaFlare to KH-Flare last year with no problems.

    Just be sure to post an announcement plenty of time in advance to let users know the new URL.

    Be sure to use proper redirects in your htaccess.

    You want to redirect your old domain to your new domain. You can do it in the control panel of your registrar or in htaccess. Will you be running the same software on the new domain? If so just forward your old domain to the new one.

    You should also update the board url. And if the domain name would be at a new host, you will have to update the db info too at the config.php file to reflect those of the db at the new host.
