Transferring a domain registered with Network Solutions
Here are a few tips that will assist you in the transfer
of your domain name to our servers.
It is advisable to keep your previous hosting account
active while trying to transfer your domain. This way you
can reduce web site down time and loss of emails if there
are any problems with your transfer. Domain transfers are
generally completed within 24-48 hours.
The Domain Transfer Process
When you sign up your web hosting account with Net//works!,
we will automatically send out an email to Network Solutions
requesting that the domain name be transferred to our servers.
Network Solutions will then email the administrative
contact for the domain name asking them to authorize the domain
name transfer. If the email address is a functioning email
address, they need to respond to the email according to the
given instructions and Network Solutions will modify your
domain name's DNS information.
If the administrative contact email address is no longer
valid, you can still transfer the domain using a faxed authorization.
For the faxed authorization you will need to sign up the domain
name in order to generate a NIC tracking number with Network
Solutions. Next file a technical support request in your Control
Panel to notify us that the administrative email address is
no longer valid. We will then forward instructionsto you on
what to include in your fax to Network Solutions.
To check the administrative contact email for your domain
name, search the Whois

have been issued a UserID and password from your registrar.
