Can I buy a new domain for the same website

If I buy a totally new domain, as I want to cancel the one I have but keep my website, can I easily transfer the new domain to my website and remove my old one?

Two things is there, one is redirect (Domain Forwarding) options another one is change your content into new cpanel.

 

Example 1 (Domain Forwarding): I have www.vistadigitals.com domain, I like to change name as www.chennaiwebdesigners.net

Step1: Goto your DNS settings and select Forwarding >> Domain Option (it means www.vistadigitals.com)

Step2: Enter your new domain name (it means www.chennaiwebdesigners.net),

Step3: Select appropriate options and Save it. It will redirect your website into new website.

 

Example 2 (Change content into new Cpanel)

Ans: First confirm your hosting plan, it is multi domain hosting plan or single domain hosting plan, if it is multi domain hosting plan take backup from your Site 1 (old domain) and upload (restore) the files in Site 2 (new domain). Else take backup from Site 1 and purchase new cpanel for site2 (new domain) and upload it. It will display same site in new domain.

 

Note: .html website is easy to restore and no need much knowledge.
