can I change domain name once I register on mywebhostingforstudents.com

Is it permanent domain name or I can rename that

1 Answer

Your best bet, would be to contact https://webhostingforstudents.com/support/ Usually, once you register a domain name, it is yours for the remainder of the time that it is purchased for. I believe that you are allowed 2 sub-domains with the account. For example, I have my main website hosted there, http://www.ihrigmedia.com , and two other sub-domains on the same account. http://www.forensicgen.com and http://www.lesliewoodssportsart.com . One account, three different domain names. In order to change the domain name, you would probably have to register a new domain name and point it to the name servers as they direct you to. Your other domain would be yours for the year, even if you don't use it. You might as well direct it to the another folder/webpage or to your main site, depending on your preferences. Here is the link to adding multiple sites on your account: https://webhostingforstudents.com/support/host-multiple-sites/
