What If I Misspelled My Domain Name When I Registered It

When you register a Domain Name, it is extremely important that you double check its spelling before you proceed to Checkout to complete your purchase.

Domain Names are registered exactly as typed by Registrants — this includes any accidentally misspelled words or typos. Once it is already registered, neither the Registrant nor the Registrar will be able to edit or change it.

When the Domain Name registration and payment transactions have been successful, unfortunately, the Domain Name you entered is the one you get.

If you have accidentally registered a Domain Name with a spelling error, you have the option to cancel the misspelled Domain Name. However, we can't offer refunds for the cancelled Domain Name anymore. Once the registration is complete, the process is irreversible and the registration fee is non-refundable.

But, if you are determined to get the correctly spelled Domain Name you initially wanted, you may still register that Domain Name — if it is still available.

Note: This registration will be considered as a new transaction, and will not be, in any way, connected to or serve as a replacement for your previous Domain Name registration.

Alternatively, you may choose to keep both names, and simply redirect the misspelled Domain to your correct address. This is useful in case of accidental misspellings by customers looking for your site.
