Yes, you can change your domain name. Just contact your hosting provider and they will transfer all of your content to the new one. But make sure that you will lose all your backlinks and ranking.Blogging Tips & Tricks @ Blogwithvk.com

When you ave bought the new domain just link the domain with your hosting as an addon domain. Once this is done, your domain will be linked with your hosting.
Ten go into the file manager of your previous domain and there in the .htaccess file, you can add the redirection code from your old domain to the new domain.
This way, the users who will come to your domain, will automatically be redirected to your new domain. But you have to generate the backlinks again for the new domain

As others have mentioned, changing currently owned domain can not be done and the new wanted domain would have to be registered.
I am guessing that with the old domain was a website that you have been using. If you plan on changing the address to the new, it would be best to contact your website creator/administrator. For some websites, the address change is very easy and can be done from the CMS side, however for others the changes has to be done manually and may include even changes in the used database or the programming code itself.

In case of spelling mistake, you can order the correct domain and redirect the present domain to the new domain.
If you are thinking of buying an entire new domain, then files needs to be migrated. Contact your hosting provider, they will assist you in case of difficulties.

If your website hosted with a regular hosting company then it's possible to change the domain name by informing your hosting provider.

What is your website is it html or wordpress?
You can save files make modifications reupload your html. You can download all your blog posts links out in wordpress.
If you just rename the folder on server and recreate new domain you can change your domain if it is static html. If you try this with a word press site databases files everything will be wrong and not work.
My advice is keep old domain name for at least another year so to inform your existing customers where you are. This way your backlinks can stay active if you have lots or you can use domain forwarding lose those backlinks but still run both domains.

You can definitely do it but its not free as you need to pay for your web hosting provider and later you can transfer all your data permanently to your new domain

Yes you can. I use bluehost and they have let me switch me hosting onto another domain before. I'm guessing yours would also do the same.

Changing the name of your website is easily done by registering a new domain. Changing the domain of your hosting account can also be done by contacting your host.
I think most persons are confused with the two, hence their responses.

if you mean renaming, then no.
If you mean changing the default domain of your current hosting to another domain, then yes.
You only require detaching that domain from the current host and attaching the other one.
Or if you require moving hosts, then you can do so and just register a new domain at the new host.
