Hi paradox677,

Great question about domain names. We would be happy to assist you with changing the primary domain name on your hosting account. Please review our article How do I change the primary domain on my account? for the steps to take and important information to keep in mind when changing your primary domain name.

If you are inquiring about changing a domain registration, I'm sorry but since domains are registered for a year at a time there really isn't a way to change one after it's registered. What you can do is set a domain registration to expire so that it doesn't renew and then register a different domain.

I hope this helps to clarify this for you. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.

Hello Zaher_Rajae,

Thanks for the question! You will need to first change your domain name in WordPress. We have a tutorial called Changing your WordPress URL. Follow the tutorial and any post made after the change will be using the new domain name. You will need to park your old domain name so that anyone going to the old domain will be redirected to the new one.

I hope that helps to answer your question! Let us know if you require any further assistance.
