Register & Keep Track of Domains

by Julie Fletcher 3 replies

I need some advice on the best place to register & keep domains, I have about 4 with enom but they are very expensive, I have a reseller account with hostgator and set up this account through them. I would like to keep all the domains in the same place but need somewhere a bit cheaper then enom!

Also, if I opened an account somewhere else, would it be easy to transfer the domains that I have with enom and would there be any down time?

    Hi Julie.

    Two registrars I can recommend to look up are Moniker and NameCheap. Ask
    them as many questions as you desire, no matter how silly they may appear,
    though I'm sure many members here will also vouch for them.

    No downtime should occur when transferring domain names among registrars.
    Transferring among them is both an automated and manual process, but you
    can get the hang of it.

    Prior to transferring, make sure the domain name's paid and unlocked, and its
    email address is correct. If you need to maybe switch your domain's website,
    I suggest doing that before or after the domain transfer as no changes of any
    kind will be allowed during that period.

    After that, start the process with the gaining registrar and confirm with them.
    They'll eventually notify eNom regarding this, and it can take anywhere from
    5 to 7 days for the whole thing to finish.

    Be aware that each registrar has their own process of doing this. If need be,
    ask eNom how to unlock and all, and ask the gaining registrar how to initiate
    and confirm the transfer with them.

    On the side, I just read that eNom is rather "slow" when it comes to allowing
    domain names to be transferred out. Just be patient.

    Good luck!

    Namecheap is good,but if your a person that may need support, I don't recommend them.But as long as you just need the basics,ie register the name and set the DNS, you should be ok.
