Change a Domain Name

  Domain Names

According to ICANN (the governing organization of domain name registrars), domain names cannot be changed. Once registered, a domain is leased by the registrant/owner for a one, two, or five year period. If you want to change your domain name, simply purchase the new domain name via the WebHero website and move your existing website to the new web space. If you do not intend to keep the original domain name registered you must cancel it at least 15 days in advance of the renewal date.

If you have an existing membership plan hosted website that needs to be moved then you will want to:

1. Purchase the new domain name through our website 1-2 months before old domain name expires. Note: To receive the best prices, sign in as a returning customer when you purchase your new domain name.
2. Download the contents of your website if you do not already have a backup copy.
3. Upload contents of site to your new hosting plan.
4. Setup emails addresses as desired to match your old site.
