Now Reading the title of this post, You must

have been wondering that what reasons COULD

make one think of changing his/her domain

name? be a new domain or an old one.

your personal domain name for a VERY long time

as no-one would be willing to buy it in case you

wish to sell in the future.

5. Domain Not Related To The Site’s Content –

You have a domain name as

“allroundsports.com” and when people check

your site, your content is all about Agriculture.
