I renewed my domain today, but would like to have it instead. I checked and that domain is available. Is there a way I can switch to that without be charged again?

Hello Southern Belle

Unfortunately it's not possible to switch domains. Once you registered or renewed your domain, it will run until its next expiry date if you cancel it.

What I'd suggest is that you purchase your desired domain additionally. With Yola .com domains are very competitively priced at only 11.95 US$/year. It's also beneficial for your SEO performance to have more than one domain.

You can assign multiple domains to one website. For instructions on how to do this please see our tutorial Assigning domains and creating a primary domain. If you're not happy with keeping your old domain, you can let us know to cancel auto-renewal for this domain, and it will expire when its subscription period ends.
