What to do with an unwanted domain?

According to our Domain Registration Agreement, all the domain registrations/renewals are final, cannot be cancelled and are not refundable. Also, there is no technical possibility to change or edit domain names after registration.

If you happen to have a domain name that you no longer wish to use, please adhere to one of the following options:

1) Register your new domain via our Domain Name Search and forward along your unwanted one.

2) Try selling your unwanted domain name in our Namecheap Marketplace. To learn more about how this process works, please visit this page.

3) Move your domain name ownership to another Namecheap user by selecting "Change Ownership". To learn more about this option, you can read this article.

4) Ensure that your auto-renewal option is turned off and allow the domain name to expire.

If you have any questions, always feel free to contact our 24/7 Customer Support Team.
