    Hello there
    So I'm new to blogging and article and SEO and domain stuff
    and I realize I made a mistake I have a name domain and it's too long and I cannot change it because I will lose my traffic if I do so
    this is my blogger: https://www.nafsiyatokasihatoka.com/
    it's about psychology and in Arabic
    so as you can see the domain name is "nafsiyatokasihatoka" so long maybe longer than my life lmao :D.
    please is there a solution for this?
    Also as I said I'm new to blogging and writing
    so for the one who's reading this if you know more than me please check my blog out to see if there are any problems I'm unaware about.
    if you don't have time it's okay :oops:
    thank you

    That domain name looks like you fat-fingered the keyboard when typing it in lol. If you need to keep traffic/backlinks you can 301 redirect it to a new domain, no issues.

    Maybe to us, but to people in Tunisia it's probably a recognisable name or phrase.

    I'm sure it makes sense in another language.

    Register a new attractive domain.
    Make a 301 redirect from the old domain.
    I think this would be the best option.

    Well i think you should leave it as it is because if you make changes you can lose your ranking and you dont want that
    I think you need to buy a new domain and continue to work on the new domain and not modify the old one as you will lose passive traffic

    If it is receiving targeted traffic, I would't change it, make the move slowly adding a link or a banner about your new domain while the new work/updates happens under the new domain.
