  1. Hello everyone,

    I wonder if any of you know anything about how
    to move a domain to another domain register...
    i meant, the question is, if this is posible...
    cus i don't want just to tranfer the domain, but
    to be moved so i will no longer belong to Yahoo!

    This is the main concern about why i need this,
    i been with Yahoo! small business for a while now
    but since july of this year Yahoo! is charging all the
    domain users/owners with $34.99 instead of $10.00

    Yahoo! is swindle the people!

    if anyone know anything about this theme, please let me know

    I think you're looking for a new HOSTING solution, not a domain transfer.

    First find the hosting solution you want and then call and ask if your existing site
    can be moved and the IP address remapped to the new host.

    two issues here
    1) the registrar that got you the Domain Name:IP Address pair
    2) the hosting site that has the web content.

    The registrar is a once/year fee and usually can not be moved or can only be
    moved with difficulty.

    The hosting site can always be moved and charges in various ways,
    monthly, yearly
