Hi Brad

Our website is almost complete. And we would like to transfer our domain to class creator.

What should be our first step? Purchase services on

Our current webhost is Network solutions, should we next ask them to authorize transfer/unlock the domain?

How long would this process take?

And importantly can this all be done online - I am the webmaster for this website and am currently vacationing in India can I manage this process from here?
In my past experience with transfers I had to continuously follow up with either of the hosts, I am really scared and don't want to mess up!

Thanks for your support and services!

Also is there a fee for Domain transfer?

Is registration the only fee we have to pay?

Yes. Your fee is $19 for a domain name, or more if you're purchasing for multiple years.

No, do not purchase hosting. Hosting is for people who are hosting sites other than Class Creator sites.

Yes, when you transfer a domain name you pay a $19 fee, which will add an additional year to your domain clock above and beyond whatever time you have left on the name currently.

Brad with the new website with classcreator.

When we transfer the domain I hope the new website will be up?

Because the one on classcreator is what we want

After transferring the name:

1) Click your Register Domain Name link along the left (when you're logged into your site)
2) In the little white box at the bottom of the page paste
3) Then click the Active Domain Name button

That's all there is to it.

Hi Brad

We are glad the transfer happened successfully and I followed your steps to activate the domain.

Looks like it will take some time to get activated?

Also I was able to make a purchase for Only year but will like to change that to 5 years how do I make that edit?

.org domain transfers from Network Solutions can sometimes take a little longer to update. I would give another 24 hour or so for the .org registry to reflect this change. The domain shows as transferred in so you can login and extend that registration at any time. Just login and click on the domain - at the top of the domain summary page there is an option to renew.

We are a concerned here since its been almost 48 hours and the website is not up.

Do we have to configure any settings in our account?

Thursday, November 20, 2008 at 12:56 AM - Response #13

Hi Janice,

I called Network Solutions tonight to find out why they have not updated the release of this domain. They said that the release of the domain is in progress and that they consider the domain officially transferred. I explained that it had been more than 48 hours and they referred me to their domain transfer policies that now state 5-7 business days. We are midway through that now so it should only be a few more days at the most. I have not seen a domain ever take the full 7 days so hopefully it will update shortly.

I submitted a transfer request (order #36915254) on on 11/3/2009 at 10:59 pm. I unlocked the domain with GoDaddy and requested an authorization code which I entered on I didn't receive any e-mails about the transfer from or GoDaddy so I reread the instructions and realized that I still had privacy enabled. I turned this off and received a confirming e-mail from GoDaddy on 11/5/09 at 11:15 pm. shows Overall Order Status as Processing and the Current Status as "Auto verification of transfer request initiated" which has been the case since I submitted the request. What is the holdup? Is there something I overlooked doing? Thanks for your help.

Hi Kate,

There was a Resend Verification Email link on the details page for the transfer. I clicked that - you should be receiving another verification email from in the morning.

Worked great! Thanks so much. I have some questions about the agreement. Do I ask them here or should I e-mail someone?

Hi Kate,
