About domain names


New Member
I have a site housed at Arvixe (since before they sold their soul to EIG) and got my domain name through them at signup time. So, when moving to Interserver, I think I understand that $1.99 per year is the charge for you to transfer and manage it. Does that mean just pointing the nameservers to you or is it actually moved to a different registrar? Your own? I obviously don't know how all of this works. What about privacy? My other domain name is at GoDaddy, so I assume your answers will apply there also. Will bill to renew automatically include the domain charge?

Hi Ellen,

You can change just the dns servers at no charge leaving the domain where it is.

The $1.99 offer is a transfer of the registration from your current registrar to interserver. It also adds 1 year. It does not change ownership of the domain - you still own it.

Whois privacy is possible but runs at $3 / year.
