    Buying domain names

    I want to buy a domain name of someone. If we had agreed that I would buy it for, for example 10, what should I then do?

    They would have to transfer the domain name, into your name. By switching out the WHOIS information, thus giving you "ownership" of this domain.

    You would have to contact the person who currently owns the domain name now - and have them transfer the domain to you.

    GAH, don't use the term "ownership", you only have it for a period of time, so you don't actualy own it, think of it more as leasing(renting)
    If you are using PHP please use the [PHP] and [/PHP] forum tags for highlighting...
    The same applies to HTML and the forums [HTML][/HTML] tags.

    I attempted to change the "temporary owner' of a domain name I received a pdf document from my hosting provider and told me to do it the paper trail way. Quite a hassel.

    May be I can help you do it free, but you'd better do it yourself. It's easy.

    You shall ask the person to give you the account name and password,
    or you shall first sign up your account and ask the person to push the domain to your account, and then you can change the ownership information.

    For more informations see my signature.
