Re: change domain name

Hi @ab125, it's not possible to change a domain name once it's been registered. If you wish to use a different domain, you'll need to purchase it as new.


If you do not wish to continue with your existing domain, you can turn off the auto-renewal option prior to the renewal date to avoid a renewal charge:

Re: change domain name

Greetings @ab125 ,

 

I want to assist, but I'm not clear what you mean by "change". Do you mean to select a new one, switch the domain on a hosting account, or something else? As for the name itself, the registries generally do not allow it to be canceled (and returned/released) after 120 hours is up. In that case, you would likely just have to pick a new one.

To switch it on a hosting account, there are searchable instructions elsewhere in this forum or contact 24/7 Support for specifics relative to you.


I hope that helps,

Re: change domain name

what am trying to say is if it is possible to changing it from example ( sam.com to vivian.com) with the same subscription?
