Domain Name

I started a website with one webhost about a year ago and want to change to a different web host..question is do I want to cancel my renual for my domain name and register a new name or can I transfer the name I already have? If i keep the name I have registered, how do I transfer?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Re: Domain Name

You should be able to keep your domain name. When I switched hosting companies the new host had a good FAQ section that explained how to transfer it. But I don't remember how to do it, or if it is the same for all hosting companies.

Re: Domain Name

You can transfer your domain name, usually for a fairly small fee. How you do so will depend on the host you currently have, and the one you're looking to switch to. Look around on their websites in the FAQ or Help sections. The information you need should be in there.

Re: Domain Name

You can transfer it. I've done it a few times over the past few years. I don't think I was charged a fee every time but I may have got around it by taking advantage of promotional offers.

Re: Domain Name

I think you should not change the domain name rather then you can change hosting server according to your need if you are not satisfied with previous hosting.

Re: Domain Name

Thanks, Katie, I have found out what I need to do to transfer the name, also what I need to do to drop my host, just so many decisions to make about it all has taken a little time to decide when and exactly how to proceed.
