What is supposed to happen is that you request the domain name transfer from NetSol which is now VeriSign, and they send an email to the person whose email address was listed (as the registrant, I think) to verify that this is on the up and up. There are directions for what to do in the email, I think you have to go to a page on their website and click on something to give your approval, and then everything should be fine and dandy. <bold>BUT<BOLD /> <sarcasm>maybe you can tell that I mean this is a huge BUT<sarcasm /> The DN transfers with VeriSign do not usually go as planned. I have literally spent weeks just trying to do a simple DN transfer, they put obstacles in my path at every turn. It was like they were trying to make it so difficult, you would drop it and just leave your domain there. In retrospect, it was comical it was so bad. I hope none of this happens, but it would be better if you assumed it was going to be a pain to do and make sure you charge for your time, or let someone else handle it. I won't go into the long and boring saga of my experience, but it took me 6 weeks to get this done with one of my websites, and naturally, it is a non-profit which I do for free. Don't ever use NetSol/Verisign if you can help it.

Got a client whose domain name was registered by his ISP, on his behalf. He is listed as the REGISTRANT, however the ISP is the Technical and Administrative contact. I want to move the domain over from NetSol to gandi. Can I do this without having the Tech and Administrative contacts changed? Or do we need to get his ISP to request those changes first? Thanks. -marc -- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
