Hi garydavine,

To change the URL of your site to a new name, click on the down arrow next to Update My Site, then click on Publishing Settings. When the Publishing Settings dialog box appears, click on Manage Domains.

An Edit Domains dialog box will now appear -- you can now enter the new and improved URL in the text entry box (where you see your current website address filled in). You will get a message that the name is ÔÇťAvailable" (or "Not Available" if it's already taken....) Click on Save, and you'll be taken back to the Publishing Settings dialog box, with a confirmation message that your website is now published with the new and improved URL (visible in a blue hyperlink...)

Hi Obaa,

If you would like to change your domain, you will need to purchase another one by following these steps:

1. Click on the down-arrow next to the green "Publish to the web" button.
2. Click on "Publishing settings".
3. Click on "Unpublish your Site".
4. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to unpublish your site. Click on "OK" and your site will be unpublished.
5. Then click on "Publish to the web", choose the domain you would like to purchase and follow the steps until your site is published.

I hope this helps clear up the confusion!
