    I'm thinking of changing my Domain name but I believe its not possible. Is there any way to get around this?

    I don't mind changing the logos, social media usernames or even worried much about the seo aspect because my content is more for viral stuff with this site. I am worried about getting any errors with the links if I am able to change the domain name.

    I was thinking of doing a redirect but I don't like the whole "you are been redirected" text at above etc.

    You could copy the website to your new domain and then do a wildcard redirect of the old domain to the new one and none will notice.

    I thinks it's domain forwarding in cPanel.

    Yes, it need more changes & lots of work involved like designing new logo's, email Id's, Social Media account, Blog themes, Articles, etc etc.. Its more Like your new site is Up!

    So, think again, whether to change domain name or leave as it is :)

    Don't take any decisions very quickly or changing your mind,
    Lets also wait for some other to give Best suggestion - maybe that seems to work, which results in staring at back2form. Imao! Big No.

    If your website is built on Wordpress its quite easy to do a search and replace in the database to update all references to the domain. I've done this many times and it's very easy to do if you take just a little bit of time to research the method

    People do it often. Google has their manual of how to change the domain for your site. Follow it thoroughly - and you won't face any problem.
