Yahoo domains

    While their offer is a great price for only $2.99 if you plan on using their service to develop a site for sale you might think twice. They do not offer ownership transfer option yet. So this makes it difficult to transfer your domain within the first 60 days. After that your buyer will have to do a domain transfer costing them another reg fee which in itself is not bad, just a pain. Kind of detracts from sale of a site when there is a hassle to obtain the domain name. So best use them to develop a site for your personal use than for sale.

    Ya I have a few domains that I was looking to sell that were at Yahoo but I decided not to for awhile due to the hassale.

    But I launched a new site and wanted to try a different hosting company (mainly to be on different servers) so I tried Yahoo hosting and its not too bad actually. Was suprised.

    After 60 days, just transfer your domain to another registrar (adding a year) and then sell the site. The extra year's registration is a selling point (you up the price $10).

    Agreed to a point, but still a hassle for many.

    Well, its really nice idea. Never though of it. After 60 days if we transfer out, will we have 22 months before expiry or just 12 months?

    Most registrars give you a year's renewal automatically when you transfer.
