Ok, got no response to my question ...
But in the same vein, I ask about 1 & 1 Internet Ltd., which seems to be well recommended in the Forums.
With all these Domain registering sites, and hosting services, does any one have any experience of having purchased a domain name & hosted it with the same company and had it transferred later on to another hosting company? I am told that in some cases, some of these web sites selling domain names are reluctant to allow a transfer t another hosting company, say, a year later when your initial hosting subscription runs out, unless exorbitant fees or penalties are imposed before a transfer is allowed or effected.
Any experiences on this? Or have most people just stayed with the companies they purchased domain names from?
