Can I Change a Registered Domain Name

Getting yourself a Domain Name requires you to be extra meticulous when you input the details needed for registration. Once the Domain Name has been successfully registered, it cannot be changed.

Domain Names are registered exactly as typed by Registrants — this includes any accidentally misspelled words or typos. Moreover, neither the Registrant nor the Registrar will be able to edit or change it, as we strictly adhere to the Registry regulations.

When you have accidentally registered a Domain Name with a spelling error, you have the option to cancel the misspelled Domain Name. However, a refund cannot be issued as we do not receive any credit or refund from the Registry for such changes. Once the registration is complete, the process is irreversible and the registration fee is non-refundable.

But, if you are determined to get the correctly spelled Domain Name you initially wanted, you may still register that Domain Name — if it is still available.

Note: This registration will be considered as a new transaction, and will not be, in any way, connected to or serve as a replacement for your previous Domain Name registration.

Alternatively, you may choose to keep both names, and simply redirect the misspelled Domain to your correct address. This is useful in case of accidental misspellings by customers looking for your site.
