Transfers Away From Network Solutions

The Difference Between Transferring Hosting And Transferring A Domain Name Registration

Transferring your hosting is changing the domain name servers (DNS) where your domain name is housed. It is most often done when you switch your website to a new hosting company or Internet Service Provider.


Transferring your domain name registration is when you move your domain name from one registrar to another.


Some Internet Service Providers (ISP) or hosting companies may tell you that you have to transfer registrars in order to change the DNS information and utilize their services. This is not true – you can retain Network Solutions as your registrar while using domain name servers from any hosting or ISP company.
