Should you Transfer a Domain or Change Name Servers to secure your digital assets?

Every serious online player looks for custom service providers now-a-days, moving away from big and fancy providers who mostly sell horror stories and relaxing tools. These big players inject virus, spyware, malware, ransomware + sell anti-virus products in same breath for its ROI by hook or crook! Transferring a website is NOT hard, but it can sound challenging for a new client to transfer a website to a new hosting provider. Add to that, your current big daddy provider can blast you with false alarms and alerts while you are about to choose it’s small competitor. When it comes to on-line security and performance, a small startup can provide you as much quality as a billion dollar corporate logically does.

If you have an existing domain when you sign up for website or email hosting plans, your domain name should be configured to work with your new hosting account by setting the name servers at domain registrar. Or transfer your domain to Indiahosting.org so that both your domain name and web hosting are managed in the same place.

As domain name registration is a separate service than website hosting, it is not required to register or transfer your domain to Indiahosting.org to use our hosting services. Ignore alarms, a domain owner is always in full control with Indiahosting.org. You have 3 options to use Indiahosting.org as your web host with an existing domain.

Option 1: Change Your Name Servers at Existing Registrar

You can leave the domain registered as it is and change name servers to point to Indiahosting.org, manage your DNS and you can make DNS changes directly from your hosting control panel. When using our name servers, your DNS records are automatically updated to reflect any domain-related changes, including addon domains and subdomains.

Step 1: Complete transfer form by providing with all of your account details
Step 2: Registrar will then go to work, migrating your content and reconfiguring site settings.
Step 3: After migration, simply change your DNS settings and the transfer is complete!

Option 2: Transfer Domain to Indiahosting.org

Use Indiahosting.org name servers to manage your DNS. This would make it so that you can manage your domain through Indiahosting.org and have your domain and hosting in one place.

Indiahosting.org will transfer one domain name for FREE per new hosting account. The one free domain transfer is for a primary domain only (domain provided during signup) and must be .in, .com, .net or .org.

Follow steps below to transfer all your web services to Solution Point by yourself:

I. Obtain the authorization code from current registrar of the domain. Refer WHOIS to find out current registrar name.

II. After you receive your authorisation code (Also known as Transfer Secret or EPP Auth Code), click here to fill it now.

III. Pay for transfer, which includes 1 year free extension or renewal and we initiate the transfer and complete it in a 1-5 day period.

We advise that you change your auth code after a transfer. You can do this through your new registrar. Once Domain Transfer is successful, hosting transfer will take few hours. Just backup your old web pages, databases and emails in your local PC and change the name servers of your domain name and your website will be live again on our servers within few hours.

Option 3: Use Other Name Servers / DNS

Not recommended for normal non-tech customers. It is possible to use name servers somewhere else and just set the individual DNS records (A records, CNAME, MX, etc.) there – whether a domain is registered with Indiahosting.org or another registrar.

As you are not using Indiahosting.org’s name servers, when making domain related changes in your hosting control panel, the DNS do not automatically get updated. You have to manually change the DNS records on your name servers to match whatever you set up in the hosting control panel.

Some will do this for a FEE, and some providers does this for FREE. We suggest http://indiahosting.org if you are based in India – though there are many other domain companies.

Do not allow a few predator cronies to dictate the use of their Internet services in such a way that we, the general masses, lose control over our own information and our participation in these networks. Choose any hosting provider except these exposed brands and avoid falling prey to the monopolies, pushing the unknown and fancy. Liberate your Internet!
