    Hey!

    Just got a short newbie question because my technical guy is currently on vacation.

    How does domain transferring work? Lets say I have hosting + some domains on 'anonymous host X' and i have bought some domains at namecheap. I am transferring those domains to my 'anonymous host x'. Will my anonymous host 'adopt' my domains completely into their system or will namecheap still have a connection to those domains?

    Because I need a bulletproof setup for my ventures. I am hosting for years with a bulletproof host and I am very satisfied with their hosting packages and dedis. But their domains are pretty costly. I am planning to buy some cheap bulk domains with namecheap and to buy some expired domains at godaddy auctions. After that I would transfer all domains to my hosting packages and dedicated servers at my bp host.

    Now my concern is - after transferring my domains from namecheap to my bulletproof host, will there any traces left from the vast mojority that the domains were registered at namecheap for the first time? I know that there is always a way to find it out but how hard would it be to discover it?

    Thanks!

    Just change the nameserver and point it to your host, why would you want to transfer the domain which is with domain registrar to a hosting company ?

    Because the hosting company like namecheap is not bulletproof. As soon as complaints are pouring in, they are starting to ask questions etc. But my bulletproof host.. they wont care.

    how much money are you saving? I certainly wouldnt add a credit card to the namecheap opr godaddy account...depending who it is they can easily call up namecheap to "take a look around"

    That is not necessarily true, your host is probably just reselling godaddy domains or namecheap domains anyways so there won't be a difference. But If you do transfer nothing would be left on namecheap's side. What is this web host that you are using? Unless this web host operates off shore they won't be "bulletproof"

    Best of luck and I would definitely not recommend transferring your domains to your host.

    The host is mediaon (former karaboga). I am hosting with them for several years and they have a great support and are really bulletproof (you can even pay with a money letter :p ) and havent seen them taking anything down till its not abusing their servers for email spam.

    Wait, you want to point the DNS.... Namecheap doesn't have to provide you with hosting... correct me if i am wrong

    No mediaon provides hosting and is bulletproof and namecheap provides cheap domains but they are not bulletproof. So complaints are sent to the hoster. But the domains can also be related to me as long as they are with namecheap. Thats why I would like register at namecheap and save some money and then transfer all to mediaon.

    thank you all for your help.. I think I am getting closer to our goal :)

    Two things:

    Lets say I have 1 dedicated server just with one IP. I am hosting with mediaon and bought 50 domains with internet.bs . Now I wouldnt transfer them to mediaon and dont change the registrar but just point them from internet.bs to mediaon. Would anyone see all the other domains that are pointing to the server if they are doing a reverse domain lookup? Because it would be really comfortable if the domains will not get associated with each other if anyone is checking reverse lookup. Or do they still see it because all domains are pointing to one point?

    I have read somewhere that pointed domains/projects have a disadvantage in SEO than domains on the same host. Thats nonsense, right?

    I actually checked on that webhost and they only have about 3 nameservers, for there entire company! And I checked what kind of websites there hosting and there all mostly porn sites. I would NEVER go with something like that all there ip's are probably black listed! What kind of sites are you building? This all sounds really suspicious and i'm kinda curious why you need all this "bullet proofing"?

    Hi!

    Yeah I got that too but I do not think that google blacklisted all the ip's because all my sites I have hosted there are in the google index. We are building a network of gambling related sites and would like a bulletproof setup because of some content issues.

    Thanks
