Domain Name Transfers in 5 easy steps!
Home : Hosting Documentation : DNS Modification/Nameserver Change



To transfer or modify a domain, you must go to your current domain registrar and follow their instructions on how to transfer. Most companies require a password for transferring a domain, so we are unable to assist you with this. You WILL need our DNS information, which is listed below. If you have any problems or questions, please let us know.

How to transfer a domain name

1. Find out where the domain name was purchased. Then go to that site/registrar and see what is required for a dns name server change. If you don't have the password for your account, you will need to contact the person/company who registered your domain.

2. You can do a Whois search on the domain name and see who owns it and where they bought it. http://www.networksolutions.com/cgi-bin/whois/whois

3. Links to sites that are common and search tools for domain name information.
http://www.internic.net , http://www.networksolutions.com

4. If you used Network Solutions to register your domain name you will need to fill out a form for changes to the primary and secondary name servers. They are located here:
http://www.networksolutions.com/cgi-bin/makechanges/domain.mod

5. Fill in our DNS/Nameserver details at your domain registrar. Our DNS/nameserver settings can be found in your welcome email.

After you update DNS settings you will need to wait 24-72 hours before changes occur worldwide. This is known as the propagation period and is something everyone experiences.

Some additional research will be required for a CORENIC domain. CORE is actually a group of registrars/resellers. Go to www.corenic.net/ and use the "search whois" box near the top of the screen, to query your domain. The output will list a CORE Registrar, like this:

CORE Registrar: [CORE-11]

To modify such a registration, go to joker.com and select the "Service-Zone" link. You will then need to log in. You should then replace the nameservers that are listed there with our nameservers.

Other CORE registrars will likely have their own procedures also -- you should contact them directly if you used such a registrar.
