Another network? Aug 15, 2010

Will you switch to another network service or ISP? I find Proz connectivity is great and I ignore an alternative host for my webs.

Best regards,
Soonthon Lupkitaro

How to proceed Aug 15, 2010

I don't know for sure because I don't have a ProZ.com hosted domain, but here are some pointers about what I would do. The thing that links the domain name to the domain host is the DNS (nameserver) settings. So if you want to use a new host, you need to change your domain's DNS (nameserver) settings to match the DNS settings of the new host.

ProZ.com is a reseller of OpenSRS/Tucows. As far as I can tell, you (the domain owner) are able to change your own domain's DNS (nameserver) settings yourself via Tucows's system.

So, your steps are:

1. Get a new domain host. The domain host will ask you for your domain name. Give them your existing domain name, and they'll give you two or more sets of DNS settings that you should change at Tucows. This may take a day or two.

2. When you have your new host's DNS settings, log in to your Tucows account (or try to, if you don't know what your password is), and then fill in your new host's DNS settings. Then wait 3 days or less for your web site's host change to take place (your site may go offline for a few hours while the change takes place).

http://tucowsdomains.com/domains/domainmanagement/how-do-i-change-my-name-servers-dns/

Try to get both the named and numbered DNS settings from your host, as I'm not sure which ones you'd need to fill in on your Tucows account.

Your web site's contents itself will not automatically move to the new host. You need to download your site (using FTP) and upload the site's contents to the new host yourself.

If anyone can confirm what I wrote above, please do.

I transfered mine last year Aug 15, 2010

Hi, I went through the process last year I think, when I transfered my ProZ.com hosted domain to another host. My new host offers a very handy option to have multiple domains/websites hosted on the same account, for the same price and there are virtually no space limits. I have done this several times as I went on to move most of my domain names to the new hosting service and it usually goes pretty smoothly.

This is more or less what you should do: first find a new host and initiate the transfer procedure. You will need various authorizations codes for the domain transfer. If this is not done authomatically (in my case it wasn't) you have to go on the Twocows website and requent the transfer of the domain and they will send you the necessary authorization codes. You should expect going back and forth with these authorization procedures (twocows, ProZ, new host), as these are required steps, but this is completed in max. 7 days. Also, you should check the instructions from your new host, most provide instructions for each step of the process.

PS: Oh, yes. After the domain is transfered you will have to update the DNS settings, but this was very simple in my case and the new DNS propagated very fast.
