Domains » Change a Domain Name

If you misspell a domain or change your mind about the domain you have registered with your site, you have some options to change it.

While it’s not possible to directly edit the name of an existing domain, you can register a new domain to replace it. The cost and process of changing the domain depend on how long ago you registered it. This guide will help you learn the best action to take.
