You Buy It, You're Stuck With It

When you buy a new automobile in the USA, there's a consumer protection clause in most finance plans.

This protection is called "right of recession". When invoked properly, it gives you, the consumer, the choice of terminating the purchase up to 3 days following your signing on the bottom line.

Many retail stores give you the choice of returning some (not all) items purchased in their store, when accompanied by the right contents and documentation, for full or partial refund of purchase price.

When you purchase a Custom Domain, whether using a Google Partner purchase or a separate contract, that may not be the case.

Generally, once you hit the "Purchase This Domain" button, you're stuck with the purchase.

When you purchase a domain, you generally pay just over $10 USD for a one year term. If you decide later that you needed a different name, just buy a second name.

When the one year runs out on the first name, just let it go. Buy 2 less coffees at Starsmucks this year, and move on.
