RSH Web Domain Transferring

This is transferring your website pages, files, images and or email accounts. Then, only changing your Name Servers so your Domain "Points" to RSH Web Services. Your domain registration remains with your current Domain Registrar

Changing your Domain Registrar

The second choice you have is to transfer your Domain Name to RSH Web Services for management and renewals.

All transfers automatically add another year domain renewal at no charge to you.

Once I sign up, what is next?

Once you have signed up for our hosting account, we will email you all the necessary steps to log in to your website account. This may be by FTP, cPanel or if a CMS like WordPress. If you requested a Domain Registrar transfer. All the necessary DNS and Domain Technical changes you need will be sent. RSH Web will help with every part of this step.

How do I change the Name Server info? (DNS)

If you requested your Domain to be transfer to us, we will take care of changing Name Servers.

If staying with your current Registrar, you will need to just change the Name Server information to ours.

The Name Servers are simply a data file that contains the details of all the resources for your Domain Name. This may include the web server, mail server, ftp server, etc. Once the DNS changes are made, all requests for your domain name can then be redirected to your hosting account. It is important that your new hosting account is set up first, website pages, files, images uploaded, and email accounts also set up before your DNS is changes. In this way, you should experience NO downtime at all.

To change Name Servers. Login to your current Domain Management panel at your domain registrar.

After you are logged in, look for the option to change your "Name Server" information.

Every Registrar has a different way of doing this. If you are unable to locate this feature, you will need to contact your Domain Registrar for further assistance.

Look for the fields that let you edit the “Primary Name Server” and “Secondary Name Server” settings. Change the existing DNS to RSH Web Name Servers. This may take 24-72 hours for the Name Server changes to fully propagate.

Domain Name Technical Contact

RSH Web Services does not require you to list us as the "Technical Contact". Some Hosting Providers do require this. They just like to see their Names associated with as many Domains as they can. It does nothing else but this. If any problems ever arise the "Admin Email" address is used, this also includes and renewal notices. And with our Free Private Registration Services, everything remains private. Always make sure you keep the Admin email address current. Always.

Find out instantly if your Domain Name is available. Then register it before someone else grabs it.

I heard rumors that some of the big name companies like godday and bluehost have actually lost domain names. Have you heard this too?

We do not like to say anything bad about any company, but we have heard some things similar - RSH Web Services.
