    Anybody here ever transfer a domain name from Network Solutions to another party. I just sold a domain and I'm unsure of what to do? The party says simply change the email address to theirs, but then they will be using my Nic Handle. Any help greatly appreciated.

    The easiest and smartest route to do it is to first transfer registrars - move the domain away from Network Solutions. I suggest using www.000domains.com . You then can easily transfer ownership at 000domains.com.

    If you try to transfer ownership at Network Solutions - you have to pay a ownership transfer fee and I have heard horror stories of people waiting many months before the process was complete.

    By the way - I suggest that everyone transfers their domains away from Network Solutions. There is no need to pay their high fees nor should you directly support a monopolozing tyrannical company IMO. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I use a UK outfit called TotalRegistrations - basically all you do is specify the domain name and pay a fee and everything else is automated.. they send out the email to the domain contact and sort everything else out for you.

    I just transferred my domain from Network Solutions to another company through TH Media. Only $11.95, which included registration for one year. After that, they only charge $12.95 per year.

    NetSol not only makes it LOOK difficult, they make the process a royal PITA. I had to change registrants (not registrars) on a NetSol domain once and it involved screwball forms, email back and forth (part of the process, not questions) notarized documents from both parties, and snail mail galore.

    Larry gave you the best possible advice.

    I agree. Network Solutions prvides more problems than solutions. Why would anyone pay for the privilege of a hassle.

    Try here POE Domains

    $7.75 to transfer a domain (includes first year) and $8.75 a year regular. I don't know of any place cheaper.
