Changing the name of the domain


#1

I have my domain registered and hosted through dreamhost. I have not used the domain but I need to change the name of the domain. Is it possible to rename the domain ? or do I have to register a new domain? and if I do register a new domain can I delete the current one.

Regards

You have to register a new one. Like car registration, you just have to let the old one expire. Make sure it’s not set to Auto-Renew in the panel.
