Lisa. This is really only limited to the domains you have available. Once you purchase a domain you cannot change it's name. It will remain your domain for the length of the agreement.

If you wish you can purchase a new domain and allow the old domian to just sit there not being used. You can then re-publish your website to the new domain.

Hi Lisa,

You can certainly change your registrant information. Here's how:

1. Log into your Yola account and click on the "Domains" link on the left.
2. Under "Advanced domain settings", click on "Edit your domain registration info". Make sure you have selected the correct domain from the drop-down list on the right-hand side.
3. Edit your details and click on "Update details".

Please note that these changes will need a bit of time to appear!

In regards to changing your domain, if you have a custom domain, you will need to purchase a new one. If you have your site published to a subdomain, you can change it as follows:

1. Click on the Site > Site Settings > Publishing.
2. Select "Un-publish Site".
3. Type "Unpublish" to confirm this action, and click "Unpublish Site".
4. After your site has been unpublished, select "Publish Site".
5. Choose your new subdomain and click "Next".

Please let us know if you need any further assistance. Thanks!
