Domain Name Registration:
Basic Rules For Registering a Domain Name:
Andyy Barr Productions offers complete domain name registration and management services. Domain name registration and renewal is included with all of our Hosting Plans.
Domain Name Transfers - Changing The DNS Information With Your Current Registrar:
If your domain name is already registered with an official registrar such as Network Solutions, GoDaddy, Register.com, etc., and you want to leave your domain name with your current Registrar, the Name Server (DNS) information listed in its record must be changed to point to our servers. We will provide you with this information when setting up your account. You were given a user name and password at the time of registration which will allow you to change the Name Servers.
If you want to transfer your domain name to us, we will initiate the transfer request for you. Before the request can be initiated, the domain name must be Un-Locked. The Administrator of your domain name will be sent an e-mail from your current Registrar to the e-mail address that is listed on the account asking them to authenticate the request. This must be done before the transfer can go through.
If you haven't registered a domain name, we will register it for you in your name. Domain registration and renewal is included in all of our hosting plans.
How Long Does a Transfer Take?
Once a transfer is completed by the registrar, it can take up 24 to 72 hours for the domain to propagate through the Internet.
What if the contact e-mail is no longer valid and I cannot respond to an authentication e-mail?
You will need to contact that company directly (probably by phone) and prove your identity, and they will transfer the domain for you.
My transfer was completed, so why doesn’t my site show up yet?
Once a transfer is completed, it takes up to 72 hours to propagate around the Internet. If your site still does not show up after that, it is possible that your ISP that you connect to the Internet with is “caching” the old routing information, and they need to refresh their DNS. Some ISP’s only refresh their DNS once a week. A good way to test this is to log onto the Internet through another ISP and you should then see your site come up.
