Hi Thomas,

Your only option at this stage would be to purchase a new domain name if you want to change it as we have already incurred the expense of the domain name. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click on the down-arrow next to the yellow 'Update my Site' button
2. Click on 'Publishing Settings'
3. Click on 'Unpublish your Site' and 'ok'. Your site will now be unpublished.
4. Then, click on 'Publish my Site', choose option "Buy my own domain name" and follow the steps until your site is published to your new domain.

When you get a reminder in 11 months time that payment will be due to renew your first domain, you can ignore the renewal reminder.

I am sorry about the inconvenience and expense, and if there was another solution we would gladly offer it.
