    So I have 10 domains on my reseller account (all mine) and since I never got business from the reseller hosting I wanted to transfer just 3 domains I really care about back down to the shared hosting plan. To save $15/month.

    Hostgator quoted my $75 to do this. That is total bull sh*t. Can I do it manually?

    Not sure, sounds like BS though. Good thing for me their main HQ is like 20 minutes from my house. They don't mess around with locals lol.

    If you can't perform a service yourself, wouldn't you expect to be charged for it? If you don't even know if it's possible to move sites from a reseller plan to a shared plan you should probably pay to have it done, that's about the most basic thing.
