    They took your domain (or hosting, or both) though they had promised you another year for free bonus, do I understand correctly? Why do they ask for $75? To

    Changing url is not the way, you'll lose everything.

    If your site is #1, it's worthy paying the $75 to take your domain back, but first try to insist on your bonus.

    you wont be able to do that, unless you redirect the old domain to a new purchased domain. which means that you will have to buy a new domain, 301 redirect the old one to the new one

    the feature in webmaster tools for domain migration has been pretty unreliable recently, ive done a few migrations over the last couple of months and its been really hit and miss - if you can avoid the migration by paying $75 i'd do it

    Itz bad idea to change the domain name.... N E wayz... the only way is Redirect...
     
  7. even with the redirect , i can't remember where I seen a case study. I would just buy the domain back, and use it as is. Probably you can make a lot of money with a no1 keyword. It depends on the market of course, if it is worth to pay the 75$.

    But it's risky and you still have to buy the domain back if you want to redirect using 301

    Why do they want $75? Bit excessive that isn't it?

    Can't you transfer the domain to another registrar and just pay the transfer fee?
