Will my name and contact information be publicly available?

What if the domain name I want to use is already taken?

You can choose an alternative domain name, or same name with different TLD/ extension, for example, if myDomain.com is not available, you can register myDomain.net if available, or wait until the current one expires (not recommended) or if you feel that you have a right to the unavailable domain name, you could follow the domain dispute policy and try to acquire that particular domain name.

Q.

How do I transfer from my current Registrar to your company?

Once you let us know the domain name to transfer and pay the transfer fee, we will initiate the transfer process, which will send an email to the current admin contact as listed in the WHOIS. You need to approve the transfer. In the next 24-48 hours, you may receive another email from your current registrar asking you to approve the transfer. Some registrars just notify you about the transfer and do not need your approval. It may take about a week for the actual transfer to take place. When you transfer a domain, it is automatically renewed by 1 year. Note that, you will not be able to transfer a domain up to 60 days from the date of registration. Similarly, if you transfer the domain within 45 days after renewing it, your current renewal is cancelled and you will get only 1 year of renewal that you normally get from the us. If you transfer after 45 days of the renewal, you will retain that renewal that you have done and you get 1 year renewal from us as usual. Transfer and Renew your website now

Q.

How do I cancel my domain name?

If you cancel it with in one hour of registration, we will be able to cancel and refund partial domain registration fee after deducting cancellation charges and credit card processing charges if any. If you want to cancel the registered domain name after one hour of registration, it can not be cancelled since registries do not allow cancellations with a refund. If you no longer want your domain name, we suggest that you attempt to sell your domain name through a domain name broker or give your domain name to an interested party or leave it without renewing it.
