How to change a domain name?

My current domain is and i want to change it to something completely unrelated. Am i able to do this without having to repurchase a new domain?

Not applicable

Hi @emhatz,

short answer is no!

It's not possible for several reasons but a main reason is that is simply an IP address in easy-to-read-human-form. It's translated from an IP address number because for us humans, a name is easier to remember than a number separated by dots. So if your domain was changed for something else, then this is the exact equivalent of mistyping your domain name in the search bar; you don't get to your site. That IP address tells the server where to look for your site files.


So without extra costs, in answer to your question: no.
