I bought a dotcom domain and transferred my siterubix to it which is running perfectly. Howveer I have a better dotcom brand name for my site so I want to change it . Would it be possible to change again? if so how do I change the domain name from the existing one. My website is https://vinylrecordsaccessories.com/ and I want to change it myvinylgold.com as I think it is a better brand name going forward

You can certainly move it vs changing it if that's what you mean.

You can use the move feature found within your site manager to move your dot com to your dot com, when you are ready. It is a simple process.

You would need to wait up to 30 days (Kyle's recommendation) for 301 redirects to be completed and for the search engines. After of which you MAY delete the subdomain however you could keep it for longer if hosting space is not an issue or for testing purposes such as themes, plugins, scripts, coding etc

You can't just change your domain name as it's your website's address on the internet. You would have to register a new domain name and then transfer your existing website to it. Site Support can handle that for you or you can do it yourself with a backup and restore.
However, the actual domain name is relatively unimportant, as long as it matches your niche (which it does). Good, informative content targeting appropriate keywords is much more relevant to rankings.

Thank you for the information!
My reason for changing would be for brand products as the sire grows (wishful thinking maybe).which Kyle mentioned in lesson one but it only just dawned on me what he meant.
I will make a decision sooner rather than later before go too far with articles etc

If you have purchased your domain name already, since your current purchased domain already has a redirect to it, I could contact Site support and tell them what you are doing just to make sure things go right, because this will be the second redirect created.

Yes it would be the second change but I really like the new name I purchased. I may have been a bit hasty with the first choice 🙄

Yes, I think your second name is catchy and great. It happens a lot that people come up with a better name later. Fortunately rankings don't depend upon the name, but its great to have a catchy name.

Do make sure you check with Site support because they may tell you to wait a little for the search engines to re index from siterubix.com to vinylxxxx.com first before you make the next move. Explain to them so they are aware of this.

Cheers!

Thank you ! Yes it may be better to wait a first. Starting to get little traction which is encouraging but dont want to cause any confusion

You can’t “change” a domain name. Once you’ve purchased it, it’s yours. You can buy another domain name and transfer your site over to it but then you will have two domains.
