I'm really new to this and only registered yesterday with a domain name, just wondered if I can do an amendment to it?

Hello Kim

Once registered, a domain name cannot be changed. The only way is to buy a new domain name and to let the old one expire. If you'd really like to change it and you only bought it yesterday, we will still be able to cancel it within the first 5 days and refund you. Please confirm if you want me to proceed.

You will now be able to purchase your correct domain name.

I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to change it so I bought the new domain name and if I could get a refund of the other that would be perfect! Very new to all of this so appreciate any help.

Hi Kim,

According to our terms of service domains are not eligible for refund as we have already incurred a cost to register it on your behalf. You can however use both domains with your website which could help to drive additional traffic for you.
