Domain transfer last as long as it's registered?


#1

I’m debating whether or not not to transfer a domain over to DreamHost or let the old web hoster manage the domain name.

I’ve registered the name for a long time (5 years? 7 years?). If I transfer that name to DreamHost will I still have that name registered for that long period of a time or just for one year?

if you transfer the doamin away from your current registar you will lose whatever you had with them, and get whatever you pay for with DH.

If you’ve still got a lot of time left, there is no reason at all to switch registars. Just sign up with DH, and then point your DNS here, and all will work perfectly! dont’t waste your money.

very sorry if I have misspoken, I didn’t think that would work. Aparently I’m wrong.

Your registration period will still stay the same but it will have an
added year.

Thanks!
