    Title says it all. Need some advice! Also a recommendation for a good offshore domain registrar? My main worry is that they will one day close and run away with my domain.

    You are worried that Namecheap closes...:D

    Or that they ban your name?

    And to answer your question, yes you can transfer from any host to another host if they support the domain extension.

    no, i was referring to the offshore domain registrar. I'm not worried about Namecheap ever closing lol. I'm just afraid they will lock my domain due to copyright violations.

    You can move it but they generally cost more. I imagine if you have a dispute, you will still need to deal with ICANN.

    Please hit the reply button so I see you reply as I unwatch threads on default.

    You need a host that says fuck off to dmca.

    There are plenty but I can't name one as I haven't had the need to use one yet.

    I think this offshore registrar might be reseller than a registrar. A real domain registrar rarely go out of business. If or When happens all domains would be transfered another registrar. Also they don't really owns these to run away with yr domain. Its at domain registry where they keep ownership details and every thing.

    Do you mean copyright problems with content or with the domain name? If the domain contains a trademark and they decide to do something, you will still deal ICANN even offshore, I think. If you mean the content, I don't know.

    Just to be sure, get domain and hosting that deny DMCA and if possible pay with bitcoins.
