When I started building my PBN I used a broker + a VA. The broker found and registered the domains. I'd pay a VA to transfer and install wordpress. Then I eliminated the broker when I learned to find better domains on my own. Except I still paid my VA to transfer the domains and install wordpress. Now I wanna eliminate my VA. But I am a retard in the respect that I can't transfer a simple fucking domain. The reason I can't do it is because I've TRIED multiple times and always get a similar problem. Like before my VA with hostgator they gave me this same transfer fee notice. What I've done... Found another good domain. Registered the domain at namecheap with fake details, new email as usual. Now I want hosting. With eleven2's $2.98 / month shared hosting plan. Here's a screenshot of what I don't get: Same thing that happened with hostgator. Back then I watched like 10 YT tuts about transfering domains. Hostgator kept asking for the fee. Went to another host, same story. Got a VA, within a few hours he had them all transferred to different hosts with no transfer fees. I have 8 additional domains just sitting that I registered over the last month. Figured this would be a great week to buy hosting, learn this transfer bs and get rid of my VA. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? AFAIK to transfer a domain you register, get hosting, then change the DNS records. It pisses me off that I can design great sites, understand code well enough to customize everything I need.... but for 3 1/2 years I've never transferred a domain in my life. This has got to end right now.
