View Full Version : Domain name transfer
12-27-2000, 02:20 PM
Ok, this simply doesn't make sense. I have a domain name with register.com (actually, with namebargain.com, but it's the same company) and in order to transfer ownership to another person, I need to fill out this long form where I need to supply the billing information for the new owner. Obviously the buyer doesn't want to give me his credit card number. And I don't want to put my credit card number in there because it says "this information will be kept on file" that means new owner will have access to it (besides the fact that I'll be paying for the name annually). I can't beleive they didn't think of an easier way to transfer ownership to start with (faxing a form?! you can do everything online, except for this), but this is simply ridiculous. Is there a way around it? If you sold/bought a domain name before, how did you handle this?

Transfer your domain to another register that doesn't require all that work. I personally use 000domains.

Ok, http://ooodomains.com works, but all the links on the main site are broken. So much for a reliable registrar. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif No, I think I'll stick with the good old namebargain.com -- and they are cheaper too.
And still, did anybody ever transferred a domain name to another owner using namebargain.com/register.com? I would love to hear about your experience.
heheh, I guess 000domains.com didn't make too great of case for you to switch to them, eh http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif
Oh well, I have never had a problem with them in the past year....weird
