is the standard procedure for moving a domain name?
It depends on where you purchased the domain.
If you purchased the name from Network Solutions, we
can just submit a quick modify note. You will need to respond to their confirmation e-mail and it will be changed in about 24 hours.
With other Domain Name providers, we can take your username and
password for your account and manually change the DNS
settings on their website. You can do that for yourself if you prefer and we will supply the DNS settings for your server.
do you need my username and password?
So we can access your account at the Domain Name provider. If you prefer to do it yourself, we can provide you
with the settings for your site’s new server. Many of our clients are designers and have several domain names in any given account.
What is a DNS?
It stands for Domain Name Server. It is the server that knows exactly where your site is located.It will send any browser to your site from just the URL they type.Otherwise, you would need to know what the IP address of the server is and instead of typing in www.yahoo.com
you’d have to key in a 9 digit number.
do I need to respond to an e-mail?
The Domain Name provider needs to know that you are indeed trying to move your domain.They have learned over the years that there are unscrupulous people who might try to move a domain without your knowledge.

There is a fax method for changing the DNS settings. Below are detailed instructions on how to Modify a domain via FAX at Network Solutions. They have special form you must fill out, print, sign and fax to them. If you fax anything other than their special form, it will be rejected.
You will have to fax this document on company letterhead. The fax will be ignored if you do not include some form of letterhead of your domain's organization.
your InterNIC Tracking Number:NIC-XXXXXX.XXXX (which we will provide)
- Once you have a tracking number fax the InterNIC directly using
their online form as a starting point. Please visit: http://www.networksolutions.com/makechanges/fax/domform.html You will need to supply your domain name, phone, email, your name, along with your InterNIC Tracking Number
when typing in the domain name into the form, DO NOT include
a "WWW." as part of the domain. Doing so will
cause the form to display a blank page instead of the proper

page of text that you should print from your web browser. Sign and Fax this document to the InterNIC with the fax number given on the form. Do not sign the fax as "Individual" or anything to that effect. Your title must be "Owner" or something to that effect.
- Do NOT send your fax to that fax number recommended on the form. This number is too busy. Instead send your fax to (703)-742-9552. On your fax write "attention: Fax Team" Also please fax a copy to Coastline at 805-964-9901 so

- Sometimes you need to call Network Solutions and ask them
the status of your fax in case they have not processed your
fax for some reason. You should give them at least 3
business days between the time you send the fax and the time
you call them. Their voice number is 703-742-4777 (on the
east coast of the US). Their phone number is almost always
busy the whole day. Keep trying.
- Take note of the fax number you are sending to, the fax number
you are sending FROM (your fax number), the date you are
sending the fax and the time of day. When you call Network
Solutions to ask them if the domain transfer process has
been completed, this is the first set of information they
will ask you.
