If the transfer is a friendly movement, then it is no different from >any other change of information to the fields. the "company owner" transfer is a little more complicated, since it can no longer be accomplished with a "single transaction". one used to be able to just send in a form that changed that information. now one must send in a single message with a "delete" request and a "new" request. presumably the domain gets "newed" which triggers the $70 charge, but never actually gets "deleted", leaving the old billing cycle intact. i was considering transferring some domains between names, but in light of this, i think i'll hold off. besides...how would i get credit for the "unused" portin of the registration fee that i had paid? -- |-----< "CODE WARRIOR" >-----| [email protected] * "ah! i see you have the internet [email protected] (Andrew Brown) that goes *ping*!"
