How can I transfer a domain name from one registrar to another?

asked:

I registered a domain name a few months ago with a little known company. The problem is the company’s service is a piece of crap – half the time their name servers are down. So I want to transfer that domain name to another registrar. So how do I go about it? Do I need to notify the old registrar and get their permission or can I just pay them for the transfer and have it take place?

Don’t trust any cheap service, many of them don’t allow you to have full control on your domain name.

As you may know a domain name is just a name, not a real website. If you are going to create your website: 1- Buy a domain name. A domain name is a name you want to call your website (ex:). To get a domain name, you have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that name. 2- Buy a web hosting service to provide your online space and enable you to get your website online at your purchased domain name.

If you want to start your website I recommend purchase your domain and hosting together. In this way it is possible to get your domain for free. Some hosting services offer this gift today.

Good Luck!
