Changing myspace URL name... this should work.

hey guys... for those of u wanted to change your url address/name.. i'm pretty sure there's a way. Unfortunately, i changed my name to one i didn't like on accident. Anyway... you basically download/install the myspace instant messenger. There, they ask you to create a username... by creating a username, you also change your current myspace url. This should work, just make sure you pick one you like... because i have no idea how to get my name back to its original. =(

It's OK. When something sounds too good to be true, that's when I really start to worry. lol

Ok, I'm not a web-guru, but I do know a bit about web servers and services. I do know that when a new site is created on a web server, a folder is created to house all of the content for the site, and (depending on the server and service configuration) a web site address is registered with the service, so that when requesting traffic that hits the server and service looking for myspace.com/monkeysLUVcats, that traffic is sent to the folder of the same name.

That being said, if the url is changed, the service may simply refuse any traffic coming in for the original site....This is not getting easier to explain.

Anytime I've had to change a URL, I've had to re-issue the page with the web server, and that involves submitting a new page with the new URL.

Not to put a damper on things, but I cannot imagine that myspace would enable it's account users to change their URLs. Do we have anyone else who can better explain this process?

Good point, alive2dive. Too bad this puts a major damper on my whole 'change your url name' situation.:(
