Hello Patricia,

Generally once a domain is purchased it is unchangeable for the period of ownership. It can't be exchanged for another domain name. Your best bet is to purchase a new domain and allow the unwanted current one to expire. You won't be charged automatically unless you have agreed to such terms with your provider.

You may be able to sell your domain if the service was available through your registrar if not then you could transfer your domain to another who is into reselling. There may be gouging costs in the transfer out .

Hi Patricia,

Just to add to what Gop said, you are always welcome to purchase the desired name you do want and publish your site to that domain and simply not use the old domain names.
