Changing the free domain name

I just got the 2 year service and I got an email saying:

“Note, although your new hosting plan is for two years, you probably
noticed we only registered your domain for one year at this time.
This is so after a year you can choose a different domain to be your
free registration if you’d like.”

Does this mean I have to wait a year to pick another one or can I do that earlier?

That’s what it means. They give you a $9.95 credit on your anniversary. Naturally, a registration goes for the full year, so you’ll have to wait for the end of that year to apply that credit to a different one.


Can I switch it with a domain that I already registered or does it have to be a new one?

You can apply the credit to any domain that’s registered here.
