Can I change the name one of my domains ( thenightowls.org) to nightowlsweddingband.com ?  Do I have to delete .org and replace it with the new  .com domain ?

Hi David, you can buy the new domain nightowlsweddingband.com it is available and just point your new domain to your website then you will have two domain names going to the same website. By the way, it would be good to tell the whole world that your band is in Dublin Ireland. Without knowing I thought you were located in Dublin Ohio, USA.

It is not possible to change a domain name. You need to register the new and then delete the old. Remember that search results are keyed to a domain name, so if you delete the old domain then you will lose all search results that domain has gathered.

Hi David, if you purchase a new domain name from dotearth.com you can point the new domain to your website. It won't work if you register a new domain with Homestead there is not a web forward application.
