Thanks much for your reply. I am hosting some sites on DH with the GD registered domains pointing to DH. That would be fine except for two things. DH gives you domain privacy for free whereas GD charges ~$10/yr for that. Secondly, GD admin web site is about as horrible as one can get. You login and most of the space is taken up by them pushing products at you. I find DH very straightforward. I'm not expecting a resolution to this. I submitted a help ticket quite some time ago asking about it and was just told that DH can't transfer the .ws domains.
You're right that DH can register a .ws, but they can't transfer a .ws domain from somewhere else to DH. As soon as you click on the submit button when trying to transfer, it tells you that.
I'm resigned to continuing with GD for my .ws domains. My question really is out of curiosity. Why doesn't DH, as a very major ISP, offer this?
Thanks again for your comments - Curt
