I tried to change my http://www.arm1.mcbrydetribe.com website to http://www.millymcbug.com, and it completely ruined everything I’ve been doing on the site immediately. I can’t get back on the site to fix it without it trying to take me to “millymcbug.com” which apparently still doesn’t exist. Now, it’s in the most plain mode ever and has lost all color, pictures, body, etc. It’s only black, white, and green writing.
Sorry to hear that, Lamar. Changing the domain of a WordPress site can be really tricky. It’s not nearly as straightforward as it may appear at first glance.
Where is the site hosted? Does your web hosting plan include nightly backups? (If not, you should consider moving to a Managed WordPress host plan that does offer nightly backups.)
If your web hosting plan includes backups, your best bet is to log into your web hosting control panel and restore the site from the most recent backup — before you made the change to the domain name.
If your web hosting plan does not include backups, you can still regain access to your site by editing the database using phpMyAdmin — a tool that should be available within your web hosting control panel — and editing the wp-config.php file for your site.

But if you just want someone else to fix it for you, you can chat with a WordPress expert here, and they can get you back up and running in short order at a low cost.
Hope this helps point you in the right direction!
Thank you! I appreciate your timeliness and care to answer questions.
