Solved re-naming my domain

Post by disdreamer on May 3rd 2012, 2:09 pm

I changed the name of my domain over a year ago. Now that things changed I would like to change it again but I just re-newed the domain. Is it possible to change it? I'm hoping it is.
Thanks

Hello,

When you purchase or renew a domain name, it's not possible to change it later. The only option you have is to remove the current domain name and to purchase another one.

Thanks !

This is what I am reading.
At anytime you can delete your personalized domain name and retrieve your default domain name
Will this automatically retrieve my default domain name? It's the default domain name I would like back.

The default on is the one that has either forumotion.com or webmaster.com etc. The domain, your going to delete is the one you bought. Once you delete it, you can't retrieve it. You'll have to buy a new one

The default domain does have forumotion.com, which is the one I want back. The one that I have now I bought last year and just re-newed, is the one I do not want any more. So if I delete it will automatically default to the domain with forumotion .com.
