Domain registration - getting my name from someone


#1

I want to register my businessname.COM (youresocrafty)

(I had to register it as .net last year) - it’s owned by:

Domain Name: YOURESOCRAFTY.COM
Registrar: MELBOURNE IT, LTD. D/B/A INTERNET NAMES WORLDWIDE
Whois Server: whois.melbourneit.com
Referral URL: http://www.melbourneit.com
Name Server: DNS1.NAME-SERVICES.COM
Name Server: DNS2.NAME-SERVICES.COM
Status: redemptionPeriod
Updated Date: 29-aug-2008
Creation Date: 18-jul-2006
Expiration Date: 18-jul-2008

Is there a way to grab this now? It’s one of those placeholder thingies…

Thanks!
dana

if im not mistaken all youd need to do is initiate a transfer in the controll panel. tho im a n00b so i may very well be wrong.

yeah, i think usually you have to get your ‘old’ host to ‘release’ it, so your new host can initiate the transfer.

But this is a virtual host, or whatever it’s called, so I don’t know how to get them to release it so I can buy it.

thanks!

indeed, i transferd my domain from an old host that shale not be named, i had to give a “number” to dh to initiate transfer, tho if i just reread the first post right, that domain has expired so im not sure.
