I've got a new domain from another hosting company. Now, I'd like to transfer it to my first hosting company.

How about the steps I should take? I've tried reading the tutorials from the first host; must I read both guidelines from both hosts, which I believe I have to write some official letter to get authorization code and .....

This isn't easy, can anyone guide?

Thank you very much.

To transfer the name servers of your domain only, please give the following details to your current hosts.

Primary DNS:
ns4.internetters.net (example only)

Secondary DNS:
ns5.internetters.net (example only)

You need to ask your new host (transferring to) what their DNS numbers are then give them to your hosts (your coming from).

I was not able to do my own transfers from my cpanel so I had to ask them to do it on my behalf, this may be your case too or you may be able to transfer yourself from your control panel.

Look at your cpanel FAQS and videos.

*smiles at George*..hahaahaha

I will just add its not I could'nt transfer my own I just was'nt allowed, they have transferred me two domains up to now with no problems.

iT TAKES A GGOD 24 HOURS BEFORE YOU CAN USE IT THOUGH.

It will look at whois something like this:


Whois Server Version 2.0

with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.

Domain Name: NEW2DREAMWEAVER.COM
Registrar: ENOM, INC.
Whois Server: whois.enom.com
Referral URL: http://www.enom.com
Name Server: NS11.
Name Server: NS12.

Status: ok
Updated Date: 27-feb-2008
Creation Date: 26-feb-2007
Expiration Date: 26-feb-2009

Hello!
I need to clarify the statements here: transfer domain name - it is moving it from one domain name registrar to another with paying annual fee for the domain name on the new registrar (only some of them like Eurodns.com do not charge you if you are moving to them).
In your case it is quite ordinary procedure after domain name registration. I'm affraid but that cannot be called transfer :(

Hello Pof,

I do not profess to know all computer jargon or how toos (heaven forbids me to become too clever) . Ozzu threads are always open to more fresh discussion.

I am grateful for your imput and I am sure George is too..

All I know is I changed my host and took two domains with me leaving my main one with the old host, well, I guess they still have all my domains in a roundabout way as its they who I pay when the domains become due.

Thanks again POF

.asia sounds good. But I suggest if you're planning about making a business for 'I mean business sake' you know what I mean, I would say Go for (.com.my)

myself clear?

And I don't think you're making 'what I thought a business-like website', and if that's so, I have no disagreement with .asia.

It sounds more ASIA like, broader sense of ownership.

Not for a business George,

I buy domains for fun. I have had a few since I started on the net, My first being (still have and will not sell) swishmagic.com, then I had one for Borneo which I can't remember all of. A friend came up with the name.

I met someone and became interested in Dreamweaver so I bought new2dreamweaver.com...haahahahaha but I won't re-new that next year. I do things then get bored you see George. If something does'nt work by yesterday it goes.

Malaysia is the only thing I have kept up with really, I am now tiring of katesplace lolol so I opened a flower garden which does interest me...for how long...shrugs shoulders!

Met someone? That guy must be Mr.Dreamverick?

Registering for a .COM here is cheaper than .COM.MY or .MY

George I wonder why your web hosting company hasn't help you to move? Most of companies do offer help with transferring (I mean such companies like lunarpages.com mmhosting.com lypha.com site5.com). And they would be more then happy to help you.
Or you decided do not ask them for help?

I think they do except that they don't do for the postfix (.com.my)

Haven't asked them yet, I went through their FAQ that day...

Why would you want a postfix/? (not heard of that)

Either in my opinion is georgesplace.my or georgesplace.com. Only Malaysian Goverment is postfixed with .gov.my

But what do I know... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Your smiley green is contagious..

I have never heard of a postfixed neither...

I mean (.com.my)
Everyone can have it, but that must have proof of business in Malaysia (Registration business certificate) which is a long story if I would to put it in here...

Some stiff laws in Malaysia,

We can open a shop here as long as we pay:

Council Tax:
Shop Rent:
Water Rates:
VAT:
Leci Bill

We do not need a certificate. If we go out of business not hurting anyone then we can find another business, Its only if 'A' company goes into liquidation that you are not supposed to open a new business for some years.

Mostly its .com .co.uk but never .com.co.uk...lmaoooooooooooo

No, suzie it isn't strict as you may seem. We don't have to pay for tax to register for R.O.B which is a name we abbreviate for Register of Business. There's another called R.O.C ( Register of Company) which will require you to have appoint a secratariat I'm not sure if that was the correct person; and pay a minimal set up of MYR 1,500++ and above and in requiring you to have another business partner.

We don't say liquidation here, we will say something like Brankruptcy which of course I'm not one.

It's in fact I'm recently doing some self-study about ( and getting help from some sources ) - companies act and etc. It is interesting especially when it comes to Trademark.
