noob question change dn ownership
Hello, How do I change the ownership of a domain name, what is the proccess? and how long does it take?
You'll need to submit a request to your registrar to either update the 'whois' contact information or start a transfer process. Once a transfer is started, an email is sent from the registrar to the email address registered to the administrator contact of the domain name (current owner). They will need to reply from that same email address to verify that it's OK to make the transfer.
If you transfer ownership there may be a transfer fee involved. It is usually cheaper to take over ownership from another person, change the password, then update the registrant name, billing address, technical contact, etc.
ok, whats the diffence, how do i do that?
Sorry to sound such a noob.
If you take over from another person, they have to give you their logon and password and registrar's URL. Logon and change the password so that you now have ownership of the domain name.
Next go to an area called "Manage Contacts" or something like this depending upon your registrar. This area will have a registrant, technical contact, administrative contact and billing contact area.
You usually only need to fill out the registrant contact area and then check a box to make the info the same for the other areas as well.
You will probably want to put in a new email address so that you will receive the confirmation email for this change.
Save your changes.
