My site has been suspended becasue of its URL that contains the word VAPE which is not allowed according to AdWords policy.

How can I change the website URL?!! (

What I truly don't understand though is how another comany out there called (clearly also containing the banned vape word) is allowed to advertize and thier site is not suspended!! WTH!

Can anyone come up with a reasonable explaination or a solution?

Google does not check trade-name in the URL

There is another issue here;

Please copy / paste here the suspension email received from Google;
Do not include any personal info (e.g. Email, CID...)
