    Hi guys!
    I have a question regarding webhosting and domains.
    Currently I have a hosting that is going to expire in a month time, and i want to shift it to other host.
    But, I still have domains under the host that is going to expire.
    My question is, what will happen to my domains when my host expire?
    Can I transfer it to the other host disregard about the min. 60days of my current domains?

    Hope I can get some help from you guys!
    Cheers and have a good day.

    - If you have registered your domains with the host, you should transfer the domain registry to other domain registration company. If it expires, it will either be freed for registration, and people will be able to register that domain in their name. Many people are waiting for domains to expire so that they can buy it and then sell to the original owners at higher price.
    - If you have registered your domains wiht other domain registration company, and you are using the concerned company only for hosting, then your domains will not be affected. You will lose only hosting (website data files, etc).
    - Domain transfer policies depends on the hosting company. So, the time limit depends on the company you are using, check their terms and conditions regarding domain transfer.

    - This is the reason I never register my domains with hosting company, when they give free domains, I just use it for churn and burh websites.

    I see,
    So, now Im registered with hostgator.sg with 3domains (1 primary and 2 unassigned), If this host expired, my domains will be untouch right?
    But, how do i get back the domains that I owned when I shift to the other host after a month time?

    Usually you will have a waiting period before you can transfer the domain - but I assume if you cancel the hosting part of your account it should not affect the domains. But as always with specific question - you will get only general answers without to know their Terms of services.
