    Hey blackhatters,

    I have a question regarding flipping websites.. I tried to use the search function, but....well you know how that goes ;)

    Anyways

    In order to flip a website, you have to be able to transfer the registrar's so I'm not responsible for making sure it doesnt expire every year, correct?

    Well...how exactly am I supposed to flip a website if I cannot transfer registrars until after 60 days?! Or does it not work like that? (I've yet to flip my first website)

    I suppose I could just change the login/billing details from the original registrar --> but is that how it's supposed to be done?

    I think you have to wait the 60 days before you can change any of the registers information. Who did you register the domain through?

    I got my domain through namecheap.com..It appears that my credit card info isn't stored and locked in their servers, so I might be able to just give them the login details.

    What my goals are is to create a few websites per week and flip them within 7 days. I suppose I could wait the 60 days and build the content up, but right now I need to build the funds up to sustain a long period of no monays :D

    yeah that thought has crossed my mind, thats why i didnt purchase any more domains in that account..

    I'm looking on sitepoint as I'm about to list my first website in a few days and i notice its rare that anyone bids on these sites.. Has the market gone dry?

    Normally you can "push" the domain to another users account at the same registrar instantly.

    The 60-90 days is to transfer to another registrar, say from Godaddy to Namecheap. This is to stop you jumping on cheap deals, then moving out right away.

    So yes you can flip it, but the user needs an account at that registrar so use a common one like GD or Namecheap.

    I would try to go the "established website" route except for one thing: You need a website that is already making money, something of which I've yet to be able to do :p

    So, my only other option is to either freelance articles, or flip startup sites :(

    what sweetfunny said is correct. most people flipping domains just "push" (transfer) it to the new owner's account with the same registrar. If they don't have an account, no problem. Just ask them for the email address they want the account signed with, put that in as the new owner, and the registrar will sort it out. there are no time constraints that way. It's if you change registrars that you will have to wait however many days.
